Short Description
Ethereum's geth client in a Docker container
Full Description

geth: go-ethereum on docker

This container compiles geth, the official Ethereum client written in the go programming language.


It is recommended to store blockchain data on your local harddisk, not inside the container. Replace /path/to/blockchain with the location you want to use.

docker run -v /path/to/blockchain:/blockchain yep1/geth

Append parameters to geth as usual. For example, you can use the --fast parameter to only download block headers. This is recommened on first start of the client, otherwise download of the blockchain takes a very long time.

docker run -v /path/to/blockchain:/blockchain yep1/geth --fast
