Alpine makes a great docker container, because it is so small and optimized to be run in RAM.
 
It might also might make a good controller for several docker containers with enough RAM.  I haven't tested this yet
 
Docker's setup is easy to use from command line.  Commands can be run from an interactive shell, or through a configuration file called a "Dockerfile".
 
docker.com has excellent walk-throughs on how to run, pull, setup a container, commit an image, and create a configuration file.  hub.docker.com is a freemium setup, where the first private repository is free.

Installation

The Docker package is in the 'Community' repository. See Alpine_Linux_package_management how to add a repository.

apk add docker


To start the Docker daemon at boot, see Alpine_Linux_Init_System.

rc-update add docker boot
service docker start
Note: On older version of Alpine Linux with older version of docker you'll also need to disable some kernel security flags in order to build images:

sysctl -w kernel.grsecurity.chroot_deny_chmod=0

sysctl -w kernel.grsecurity.chroot_deny_mknod=0

For more information, have a look at the corresponding Github issue.

Anyway, this weakening of security is not necessary to do with Alpine 3.4.x and Docker 1.12 as of August 2016 anymore.

Docker Compose

'docker-compose' is in 'Community' repository since Alpine Linux >= 3.10.

apk add docker-compose

For older releases, do:

To install docker-compose, first install pip:

apk add py-pip python3-dev libffi-dev openssl-dev gcc libc-dev make
pip3 install docker-compose

Isolate containers with a user namespace

adduser -SDHs /sbin/nologin dockremap
addgroup -S dockremap
echo dockremap:$(cat /etc/passwd|grep dockremap|cut -d: -f3):65536 >> /etc/subuid
echo dockremap:$(cat /etc/passwd|grep dockremap|cut -d: -f4):65536 >> /etc/subgid

and add in /etc/docker/daemon.json

{  
        "userns-remap": "dockremap"
}

You may also consider these options : '

       "experimental": false,
       "live-restore": true,
       "ipv6": false,
       "icc": false,
       "no-new-privileges": false

You will find all possible configurations here[1].

Example: How to install docker from Arch

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Docker

"WARNING: No {swap,memory} limit support"

You may, probably, encounter this message by executing docker info. To correct this situation we have to enable the cgroup_enable=memory swapaccount=1

Alpine 3.8

Well I'm not sure it wasn't the case before but for sure with Alpine 3.8 you must config cgroups properly

Warning: This seems not to work with Alpine 3.9 and Docker 18.06. Follow the instructions for grub or extlinux below instead.

echo "cgroup /sys/fs/cgroup cgroup defaults 0 0" >> /etc/fstab
cat >> /etc/cgconfig.conf <<EOF
mount {
cpuacct = /cgroup/cpuacct;
memory = /cgroup/memory;
devices = /cgroup/devices;
freezer = /cgroup/freezer;
net_cls = /cgroup/net_cls;
blkio = /cgroup/blkio;
cpuset = /cgroup/cpuset;
cpu = /cgroup/cpu;
}
EOF

Grub

Well; if you use Grub it is like any other linux and you just have to add the cgroup condition into /etc/default/grub, then upgrade your grub

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="... e=memory swapaccount=1"

Extlinux

With Extlinux you also add the cgroup condition but inside /etc/update-extlinux.conf

default_kernel_opts="... cgroup_enable=memory swapaccount=1"

than update the config and reboot

update-extlinux

How to use docker

The best documentation for how to use Docker and create containers is at the main docker site. Adding anything more to it here would be redundant.

http://docs.docker.com/

if you create an account at docker.com you can browse through other user's images and learn from the syntax in contributor's dockerfiles.

Official Docker image files are denoted by a blue ribon on the website.
