MySQL Docker Container for OSX
This is a docker image based on the official MySQL container that solves the file permissions issue when trying to map a local directory to /var/lib/mysql on the docker container by assigning the UID and GID of the current OSX user to the mysql user in the containter.
Simply run a detached container based on this image:
docker run -d -v <my_data_dir>:/var/lib/mysql -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=<my_password> theredlabs/mysql-osx
where my_data_dir is your local data folder in OSX and my_password is the desired root password for mysql.
