Want to use Docker? More on this later. For now you may look at the docker directory at the top of the repository on GitHub, or if you’re feeling plucky, check out the contents of Dockerfile.

Quick start

$ cd docker
$ docker run -p 8990:8990 -d --name=nsot nsot/nsot start --noinput


Here is the readme until we clean up these docs and include them for real here.

# NSoT Docker Image

This Docker image runs NSoT. Perfect for quick developing and even deploying in

## Using this image

`nsot-server --config=/etc/nsot/` is the image entrypoint, so the
command passed to docker run becomes CLI parameters. This is equivalent to what
the default is:

$ docker run -p 8990:8990 -d --name=nsot nsot/nsot start --noinput

Image tags should correspond with NSoT release version numbers. Basic usage is


$ NSOT_SECRET='X9HqplzM_0E3Ghf3QOPDnO2k5VpVHkfzsZsVer4OeKA='
$ docker run -p 8990:8990 -d --name=nsot -e NSOT_SECRET=$NSOT_SECRET nsot/nsot:1.0.10

## Getting started

With the docker container running, you need to create a superuser
From the command above, create the super user as follows:

$ docker exec -it nsot bash
# nsot-server --config=/etc/nsot/ createsuperuser —email

This will prompt you for a password, which you can then use to log into http://dockerhost:8990/

If you have an established database and you don't wish to attempt to upgrade it
then you'll need to specify `--no-upgrade`

If you wanted to do interactive debugging, use the docker run flags `-ti` and
pass the relevant options:

$ docker run -p 8990:8990 -ti --rm nsot/nsot dbshell
    SQLite version 3.8.2 2013-12-06 14:53:30
    Enter ".help" for instructions
    Enter SQL statements terminated with a ";"
    sqlite> exit


$ docker run -p 8990:8990 -ti --rm nsot/nsot shell_plus

If you want to add an entire custom config, volume mount it to

## Ports

Only TCP 8990 is exposed

## Environment Variables

Pass these with `-e` to control the configuration. `NSOT_SECRET` should be the
bare minimum set, setting an external DB if in production or wanting
persistence should be second.

Note that the `NSOT_SECRET` must be 32 url-safe base64-encoded bytes. You may
generate one by executing this:

python -c "import base64, os; print base64.urlsafe_b64encode(os.urandom(32))"
