How to push container to Google Container Registry (unable to create repository)

EDIT: I’m just going to blame this on platform inconsistencies. I have given up on pushing to the Google Cloud Container Registry for now, and have created an Ubuntu VM where I’m doing it instead. I have voted to close this question as well, for the reasons stated previously, and also as this should probably […]

Docker for Windows networking

I’m having some trouble understanding Docker for Windows and how the networking works. In VirtualBox with a bridged adapter and an Ubuntu vm, things just worked – I could ping the vm from my host (and vice versa) fine. How do I ping a container from any device on my network? And how do ping […]

Virtual machine disk space in Docker for Windows beta

In my old docker container, created with the docker toolbox on Windows I was able to use the docker-machine create -d virtualbox –virtualbox-disk-size 50000 default command to create the container with more disk space as I have big images stored in it and/or “create another environment” next to the default. Since the upgrade to the […]

Node.js dev environment in Docker on Windows

I have tried everything I can think of. I have read the docs, blogs and tried following samples on github. But I can’t seem to get it to work. What I want to do is simple. I want to write my node.js code on my windows 8.1 machine, and I also want to run the […]

Does the OCF spec mean that Docker is no longer Linux centric?

When I first heard that Microsoft was working to run docker containers it didn’t make sense. For a while it seemed that Docker was Linux-centric, with its dependency on Linux Containers. Now it seems Docker has switched from LXC to an implementation of the Open Containers Format (OCF) spec in runc. My question is: Does […]

Docker won't start on Windows: Not Enough memory to start docker

I am trying to get started with Docker on Windows. My machine has 4GB of RAM and a 1.9GHz – 2.5GHz Intel i5 processor, running Windows 10 Pro x64. I know these aren’t powerful specs, but I would have thought I should be able to run Docker? However, having downloaded Docker, I get the error […]

How to sync back files from a Docker container to its host?

Maybe I am overcomplicating this. My goal is to create a Docker-based workflow on Windows for Node.js application development. In development time, I’d be able to run my app locally inside a container and still see the latest version without too much hassle (I don’t want to rebuild the image everytime to see the latest). […]
