Docker Machine Driver
This library adds the support for creating Docker Machines hosted on IONOS Cloud.
NOTE: Please consider using Docker Machine Driver v6 releases that are using IONOS Cloud API Version 6, the latest stable API version. New features and improvements will be integrated in IONOS Cloud API Version 6.
Docker Machine Driver is the official driver for Docker Machine to use with IONOS Cloud. It adds support for creating Docker Machines hosted on the IONOS Cloud.
The Ionos Cloud Docker Machine Driver is written in the Go programming language. Your system will need to have Go installed. Please refer to the Go Install Documentation if you do not have Go installed and configured for your system.
Remember to set
$PATH. The following are just examples using the
exportcommand, you will need to adjust the paths for your particular installation.
# Check if /usr/local/bin is part of your PATH
# Download and extract the binary (<version> is the full semantic version):
curl -sL https://github.com/ionos-cloud/docker-machine-driver/releases/download/v<version>/docker-machine-driver-<version>-linux-amd64.tar.gz | tar -xzv
# Move the binary somewhere in your $PATH:
sudo mv ~/docker-machine-driver-ionoscloud /usr/local/bin
# See options for the driver to use with the Docker Machine
docker-machine create --help --driver ionoscloud
For Windows users, you can download the latest release available on Release Page, unzip it and copy the binary in your
PATH. You can follow this [official guide](https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ee537574(v=office.14).aspx) that explains how to add tools to your
With the prerequisites taken care of, will need to run the following commands to install the Ionos Cloud Docker Machine Driver:
git clone https://github.com/ionos-cloud/docker-machine-driver.git
After cloning the repository, you can build and install the driver itself:
When successful, we will end up with a newly created
Depending on how your
$PATHis being set, you may need to copy the binary to
$PATHin order to use the Docker Machine Driver.
sudo cp $DIRECTORY_PATH/docker-machine-driver/bin/docker-machine-driver-ionoscloud /usr/local/bin/docker-machine-driver-ionoscloud
Note that the development version is a work-in-progress of a future stable release and can include bugs. Officially released versions will generally be more stable. Check the latest releases in the Release Page.
The IONOS Cloud Docker Machine Driver aims to offer access to all resources in the IONOS Cloud API and also offers some additional features that make the integration easier:
- authentication for API calls
- handling of asynchronous requests
- How can I open a bug/feature request?
- Can I contribute to the Docker Machine Driver?
