The lazier way to manage everything docker
A simple terminal UI for both docker and docker-compose, written in Go with the gocui library.

Minor rant incoming: Something's not working? Maybe a service is down.
docker-compose ps. Yep, it's that microservice that's still buggy. No issue, I'll just restart it:
docker-compose restart. Okay now let's try again. Oh wait the issue is still there. Hmm.
docker-compose ps. Right so the service must have just stopped immediately after starting. I probably would have known that if I was reading the log stream, but there is a lot of clutter in there from other services. I could get the logs for just that one service with
docker compose logs --follow myservicebut that dies everytime the service dies so I'd need to run that command every time I restart the service. I could alternatively run
docker-compose up myserviceand in that terminal window if the service is down I could just
upit again, but now I've got one service hogging a terminal window even after I no longer care about its logs. I guess when I want to reclaim the terminal realestate I can do
ctrl+P,Q, but... wait, that's not working for some reason. Should I use ctrl+C instead? I can't remember if that closes the foreground process or kills the actual service.
What a headache!
Memorising docker commands is hard. Memorising aliases is slightly less hard. Keeping track of your containers across multiple terminal windows is near impossible. What if you had all the information you needed in one terminal window with every common command living one keypress away (and the ability to add custom commands as well). Lazydocker's goal is to make that dream a reality.
lazydockerformula can be found in the Homebrew core but we suggest you to tap our formula to get frequently updated one. It works with Linux, too.
sh brew install jesseduffield/lazydocker/lazydocker
sh brew install lazydocker
You can install
scoop install lazydocker
You can install
choco install lazydocker
You can manually download a binary release from the release page.
Automated install/update, don't forget to always verify what you're piping into bash:
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jesseduffield/lazydocker/master/scripts/install_update_linux.sh | bash
The script installs downloaded binary to
/usr/local/bindirectory by default, but it can be changed by setting
Required Go version >= 1.8
go get github.com/jesseduffield/lazydocker
You can install lazydocker using your AUR package manager of choice or by running:
git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/lazydocker.git ~/lazydocker cd ~/lazydocker makepkg --install
A development version of the AUR package is also available
- If you have a ARM 32 bit v6 architecture
```sh docker build -t lazyteam/lazydocker \ --build-arg BASE_IMAGE_BUILDER=arm32v6/golang \ --build-arg GOARCH=arm \ --build-arg GOARM=6 \ https://github.com/jesseduffield/lazydocker.git ```
If you have a ARM 32 bit v7 architecture
docker build -t lazyteam/lazydocker \ --build-arg BASE_IMAGE_BUILDER=arm32v7/golang \ --build-arg GOARCH=arm \ --build-arg GOARM=7 \ https://github.com/jesseduffield/lazydocker.git
If you have a ARM 64 bit v8 architecture
docker build -t lazyteam/lazydocker \ --build-arg BASE_IMAGE_BUILDER=arm64v8/golang \ --build-arg GOARCH=arm64 \ https://github.com/jesseduffield/lazydocker.git
Run the container
docker run --rm -it -v \ /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \ -v /yourpath:/.config/jesseduffield/lazydocker \ lazyteam/lazydocker
- Don't forget to change `/yourpath` to an actual path you created to store lazydocker's config - You can also use this [docker-compose.yml](https://github.com/jesseduffield/lazydocker/blob/master/docker-compose.yml) - You might want to create an alias, for example:
```sh echo "alias lzd='docker run --rm -it -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v /yourpath/config:/.config/jesseduffield/lazydocker lazyteam/lazydocker'" >> ~/.zshrc ```
For development, you can build the image using:
git clone https://github.com/jesseduffield/lazydocker.git cd lazydocker docker build -t lazyteam/lazydocker \ --build-arg BUILD_DATE=`date -u +"%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ"` \ --build-arg VCS_REF=`git rev-parse --short HEAD` \ --build-arg VERSION=`git describe --abbrev=0 --tag` \ .
If you encounter a compatibility issue with Docker bundled binary, try rebuilding the image with the build argument
--build-arg DOCKER_VERSION="v$(docker -v | cut -d" " -f3 | rev | cut -c 2- | rev)"so that the bundled docker binary matches your host docker binary version.
lazydockerin your terminal. I personally use this a lot so I've made an alias for it like so:
echo "alias lzd='lazydocker'" >> ~/.zshrc
(you can substitute .zshrc for whatever rc file you're using)
everything is one keypress away (or one click away! Mouse support FTW):

By opening lazydocker, clicking on the 'project' panel in the top left, and pressing 'o' (or 'e' if your editor is vim). See Config Docs
In the future I want to make this the default, but for now there are some CPU issues that arise with wrapping. If you want to enable wrapping, use
Because we support mouse events, you will need to hold option while dragging the mouse to indicate you're trying to select text rather than click on something. Alternatively you can disable mouse events via the
Mac Users: See Issue #190 for other options.
By default we only show logs from the last hour, so that we're not putting too much strain on the machine. This may be why you can't see logs when you first start lazydocker. This can be overwritten in the config's
If you are running lazydocker in Docker container, it is a know bug, that you can't see logs or CPU usage.
