Dockership is a tool for easily deploying Docker containers to one or multiple Docker servers.
Nowadays we have many powerful tools for configuration management such as Puppet, Chef and Ansible even docker-based deployments tools like Deis. This tools are great for medium/big projects, but not optimal for small startups without a DevOps guy, and personal side projects.
With Dockership you can deploy your applications, based on a Docker container, to several server without learning complex DSLs or hundreds of new terms. Learns new things is great, but when you deploy from time to time, remember how to do it becomes hard to remember.
The deploy is based on git repositories (currently only supports Github ones) containing the Dockerfile for each project. Dockership handles the building and running process at one or multiple docker servers, the version control is made through the git commits, being extremely easy.
Dockership comes in two flavours CLI and HTTP, here you can see a screenshot from the HTTP view.
The configuration is based on a INI-style config file like this
[Project "corporate-site"] Repository = firstname.lastname@example.org:example/corporate-site.git Environment = live Environment = dev Port = 0.0.0.0:80:80/tcp [Environment "live"] DockerEndPoint = http://live-1.example.com DockerEndPoint = http://live-2.example.com [Environment "dev"] DockerEndPoint = http://dev.example.com
