##Docker image usage
Busybox includes a small (but very useful) set of commands. When you need just a little bit of extra oomph from another program, busyboxer can create a tar file with a binary and all its dependencies for use in a busybox Docker image.
For example, if you need
htpasswd for busybox, run
docker run -t -i --rm -v `pwd`:/vapr/build sojournlabs/busyboxer htpasswd apache2-utils
This takes the
htpasswd executable (and its dependencies) from the
apache2-utils package and creates a
.tar.gz file with them in it. Note this does not work for all programs such as programs that bind libraries at runtime.
busyboxer command_name [from_package]
where command_name is the name of the command to be packaged and from_package is the package that provides command_name in Debian, where applicable.
To run the
.tar.gz file produced with busyboxed using the dockertools wrapper, run
busyboxed command_name arg1 arg2 ... argn
That's all! For more details on usage, look at the dockertools wrapper source or in the Dockerfiles for busyboxer and busyboxed.
