  • Joseph Honnoll

    I'm kinda new to Linux so what's the use of this feature?

  • Joseph Honnoll

    Thanks. Not a feature for me but for others yeah

  • Vince Pelss

    This looks like a very interesting.

    I think this is going to keep me busy for days!

    Forrest, it looks like when you guys added Flatpak and renamed the forum it broke your link above, the new link appears to be https://neverware.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/topics/360000017388-Flatpaks-Docker-VMs-etc

    Thanks dragon!

    I have recently replaced Mac OS Mojave on my 2015 MacBook Air with CloudReady and I'm determined to make the switch permanent!  One key item was the ability to spin up Docker containers, which this support article covers off on.  However, I also needed to have 'docker-compose' to spin up my development environment.

    After a lot of searching I found the solution that works and wanted to post the link/details here in case someone else was looking for a solution.

    The approach that worked for me was to Install Docker Compose as a Container.

    After following those steps, I was able to spin up my dev environment with one command.

    Hopefully this helps someone else out who may be looking.


    P.S. To the CloudReady team: THANKS FOR THE GREAT WORK! Crazy that Apple's native OS will not support more than 1 external display (only DP 1.1) even though the hardware supports DP 1.2. CloudReady allows me to have two external displays with an extended desktop. Thanks again!

  • Forrest Smith

    Thrilled to hear you're using Docker on CloudReady, and that it gives you more on the hardware that you have. That's why we make it so, cheers!

    Has anybody tried Onlyoffice-document-server as a docker? Possibly together with Nextcloud, or by itself? 

    I'd like Onlyoffice to try:

    1. Using onlyoffice in the browser. Whether connected or not.

    2. Using the logins to dropbox/box/webdav etc. witthout having to store the credentials online in personal.onlyoffice.com. 

    3. Possibly used in conjunction with a locally installed Onlyofice-desktopeditors to store encrypted externally? 

    Any other experiences? 





  • J. Muller

    Has anybody tried nextcloud or nextcloud+onlyoffice in docker on Cloudready-docker?

    I would be interested in:

    1.. Using access to a local nextcloud that can store in remote webdav/nextcloud/box/gdrive that is always encrypted. 

    2. Possibly using local onlyoffice with added blockchain encryption to remote as well.

    3. Running nextcloud apps like their epub-reader, dicom medical photoviewer etc.

    Last time I tried Docker was a few months back, and it had problems.

    I am happy to say I was able to run it successfully now on version 72.4.61.  I made a sample image, ran it and everything worked flawlessly.  I followed the initial learn/use documentation at Docker that Forrest had posted at the beginning of this thread.  Thank you!

  • Forrest Smith

    That's awesome!
    Thanks for the feedback Nero - appreciate you taking the time to let us know it got better.
    If you ever end up doing something interesting with docker on CR please share the details in a new post - I always want to lean more about how folks find that feature useful.
