A Docker Container for River5

30 March, 2016

I’m rebuilding a VPS that I use for a bunch of my websites, side projects, and experiments. It hosts some static sites via Apache, a few rails apps, a node app, Postgres, and other bits and bobs. I want maintenance of configuration to be simpler in the future so I’m giving Docker a crack.

One of the side effects of using Docker should be that I can mess about with different tools and rollback to a clean state easily.

My first effort in learning Docker has been to create a container for hosting the River5 river-of-news aggregator by Dave Winer.

It’s up on Github and ripe for pull requests.
