When performing Docker trainings I like to show the Docker events stream.
This container is a one-liner to be able to watch docker events.


$(docker run sequenceiq/docker-events)


In the background what it does:

  • starts a socat to proxy to make /var/run/docker.sock available as a usual tcp port.
  • start curl to connect to docker daemon via the proxied docker.sock
  • let jq format and colorize the json stream


The socat trick makes it easy to reach the docker daemon via a tcp port, but removes
any SSL layer. So don’t expose the port proxied by socat.
