HypriotOS: Docker playground for Raspberry Pi (hypriot.com)

Or better yet, integrated into Raspbian, so that containers would be "apt-get install docker" away.

Would love to see it there, too. Maybe we should just ask them if they would support that.

Just got a second rpi for that purpose only. That submission couldn't be more timely as I didn't see it after my day of Googling.

Great to hear that. Still lots of people do not know us. So spread the word :)

The rpi sea is vast and moving. From a distance it's not easy to follow.

Wherever you are - the Docker Pirates are coming for your Pi!

I think it's Raspbian + hypriot kernal + Docker + other special sauce like the ability to plug a program in via a USB stick

Do you guys post the process by which you compile this image anywhere? I was very impressed the last time I saw you put out an update because I have tried in the past (as a learning excercise) to do the exact same thing. Compiling a kernel that supports docker for the pi was quite a challenge. For me, at least.

Yes, that's true. It can be a pain in the ass.

How is this different from snappy ubuntu on RPi?

Not exactly sure where they differ. But the most obvious thing is that Snappy has a completely different way of installing packages and its own package format, too.

HypriotOS on the other hand just uses the standard Debian way of installing and managing software.

I don't think you can do Docker on Snappy Ubuntu for RPi (ARM).
