Selenium Grid Standalone - Firefox Debug
This image is only intended for development purposes! Runs a Selenium Grid Standalone with a VNC Server to allow you to visually see the browser being automated.
How to use this image
$ docker run -d -P selenium/standalone-firefox-debug
You can acquire the port that Selenium is listening on by running:
$ docker port <container-name|container-id> 4444 #=> 0.0.0.0:49338
What is Selenium?
Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.
Selenium has the support of some of the largest browser vendors who have taken (or are taking) steps to make Selenium a native part of their browser. It is also the core technology in countless other browser automation tools, APIs and frameworks.
See the Selenium site for documation on usage within your test code.

The first place where people ask for help about Selenium is the Official User Group. Here, you'll find that most of the time, someone already found the problem you are facing right now, and usually reached the solution for which you are looking.
Note: Please make sure to search the group before asking for something. Your question likely won't get answered if it was previously answered in another discussion!
The best place to ask for help is the user group (because they also keep the information accessible for others to read in the future). However, if you have a very important (or too simple) issue that needs a solution ASAP, you can always enter the IRC chat room. You might just find someone ready to help on
#selenium at Freenode.

In an effort to help our tester start using selenium we created a selenium client with ipython that has autocomplete, and is easy to start. Have a look: https://hub.docker.com/r/brightit/ipython-selenium
If you decide to run this container on docker for mac you need to remember to add option
-e no_proxy=localhost or it won't run
Further to clearreviews comment, the password for logging into the server is 'secret'
Hi folks. This is awesome, however the instructions above for getting "debug mode" this to work on a Mac seem flawed. To get it going, I added this to the to the seleniun service in my Docker Compose file:
ports: - "5900:5900"
and then point by VNC client at vnc://<ip-of-docker-machine>:5900
