Portainer, an easier way for managing docker containers
Kubernetes and its lite version – Minikube – are the traditional way of managing a group of docker containers.
They are not intuitive and it takes a while to feel comfortable using them.
Kubernetes may still be an option for large clusters, distributed across multiple datacenters, but for less complex situations, a new alternative exists – portainer.
Here is a tutorial.
If you’re on Linux and have docker installed, then all you’d need to do is:
docker run -d -p 9000:9000 –name=portainer -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock portainer/portainer
The image is about 9Mb, is very fast and the functionality is intuitive to use.
