DockerUI is a web interface for the Docker Remote API. The goal is to provide a pure client side implementation so it is effortless to connect and manage docker. This project is not complete and is still under heavy development.
- Minimal dependencies - I really want to keep this project a pure html/js app.
- Consistency - The web UI should be consistent with the commands found on the docker CLI.
docker run -d -p 9000:9000 --privileged -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock dockerui/dockerui
Open your browser to
http://<dockerd host ip>:9000
Bind mounting the Unix socket into the DockerUI container is much more secure than exposing your docker daemon over TCP. The
--privileged flag is required for hosts using SELinux. You should still secure your DockerUI instance behind some type of auth. Directions for using Nginx auth are here.
Specify socket to connect to Docker daemon
By default DockerUI connects to the Docker daemon with
/var/run/docker.sock. For this to work you need to bind mount the unix socket into the container with
You can use the
-e flag to change this socket:
# Connect to a tcp socket: $ docker run -d -p 9000:9000 --privileged dockerui/dockerui -e http://127.0.0.1:2375
Change address/port DockerUI is served on
DockerUI listens on port 9000 by default. If you run DockerUI inside a container then you can bind the container's internal port to any external address and port:
# Expose DockerUI on 10.20.30.1:80 $ docker run -d -p 10.20.30.1:80:9000 --privileged -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock dockerui/dockerui
