There is already sysutils/docker, what is the difference with that port?
imho that one should just be removed, I am wrong?
The sysutils/docker port is the port for Docker client, which combined with sysutils/docker-machine produces the experience on par to Docker on macOS.
The sysutils/docker-freebsd is a port by Kris of the effort made circa 2012 to bring Docker server up on FreeBSD.
There is currently a separate effort to get the server component working on FreeBSD which is taking a separate approach and when that's ready, sysutils/docker-freebsd should be deleted.
Also, sysutils/docker follows upstream and is *the* official Docker code.
I don't think this port should be deleted.
sysutils/docker only includes the official Docker client.
sysutils/docker-machine is docker MANAGE tool, it can create docker instance on different platforms(aws,vbox,digitocean,mac os) which must have driver plugins first.You can think docker-machine as Ansible or similar tools, which can manage Apache HTTPd instance on different OS, but someone must port httpd to different OS and write ansible playbook for each platform first.For Mac OS,dockder-machine use Xhyve to create docker, see :https://github.com/docker/docker.github.io/blob/master/machine/AVAILABLE_DRIVER_PLUGINS.md
sysutils/docker-freebsd port the dockder to FreeBSD using jail and linux emulation. It can make setup and manage linux jail on freebsd more convince and has benefit for FreeBSD to leverage the docker ecology.
I am trying to update dockder-freebsd,see:
this need some time.And I hope eventually push the patch to upstream.
Hmm, cool. Another group is working on the same thing.
I'll try to get you in touch with them...
Thanks for working on this!
The main problem with sysutils/docker-freebsd is that it's very old. I can't use recent version of docker-compose, which is needed to run Docker4Drupal, forcing me to use Ubuntu.
What is the status of getting an updated Docker server on FreeBSD?
@Nikolai Who is this other group? Are they doing their work in public where we can follow their progress and work together?
@Jov Any updates on https://github.com/amutu/docker ? It seems to have stalled in May at Docker v1.10.0, which is from Jan 2016, so still a bit old.
In the mean time, can we make this port (sysutils/docker-freebsd) use https://github.com/amutu/docker ? That would allow docker-compose.yml v2.0 files to work.
Discussions are welcome and encouraged but should take place in appropriate places such as the mailing lists, IRC, etc, rather than on an issue tracker
The original request/report was committed in ports r441078, assign and close accordingly.
