A Python library for the Docker Engine API. It lets you do anything the
dockercommand does, but from within Python apps – run containers, manage containers, manage Swarms, etc.
The latest stable version is available on PyPI. Either add
requirements.txtfile or install with pip:
pip install docker
If you are intending to connect to a docker host via TLS, add
docker[tls]to your requirements instead, or install with pip:
pip install docker[tls]
Connect to Docker using the default socket or the configuration in your environment:
import docker client = docker.from_env()
You can run containers:
>>> client.containers.run("ubuntu:latest", "echo hello world") 'hello world\n'
You can run containers in the background:
>>> client.containers.run("bfirsh/reticulate-splines", detach=True)
You can manage containers:
>>> client.containers.list() [, , ...]
>>> container = client.containers.get('45e6d2de7c54')
>>> container.attrs['Config']['Image'] "bfirsh/reticulate-splines"
>>> container.logs() "Reticulating spline 1...\n"
You can stream logs:
>>> for line in container.logs(stream=True): ... print line.strip() Reticulating spline 2... Reticulating spline 3... ...
You can manage images:
>>> client.images.list() [, , ...]
