How to build boot2docker.iso from source?

I’m trying to setup Docker on OSX not using the OSX App or Vagrant. I noticed boot2docker now supports the VMWare Guest Additions to mount directories. However the latest version including these changes hasn’t been released yet. So how do I build a new boot2docker.iso file from the GitHub repository?

Boot2docker includes a documentation on how to do this:

  • running container from private registry with docker swarm
  • Thousands of cAdvisor Docker containers created until disk runs out of space
  • Docker Registry 2.0 enable CORS
  • Can not pull docker images from docker-registry when using ceph storage
  • Giving a Docker container configuration access to a device
  • Running Kubernetes Example on CoreOS, Part 1 not work
  • Unfortunately the documentations doesn’t make sense to me. I’m not sure what I need to do to build that ISO file.

  • docker attach vs lxc-attach
  • How to configure docker to be able to have internet access via wireless connection?
  • Dockerizing Spring Boot App with Postgresql
  • internal infrastructure with docker
  • Using Docker Environment Variables in Angular2 application
  • How to switch between active docker machine on window
  • One Solution collect form web for “How to build boot2docker.iso from source?”

    Version 1.3.0 and up, which supports the extensions and also mounting host volumes, has been released in the meantime (a litte over a day after your question).

    It is available here:

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
