Convos loves Docker

Posted by Jan Henning Thorsen on 4. Dec, 2016.

We now have an official Docker file for Convos! The image is based on Alpine 3.5, making it very small and easy to install. You can get up and running with these commands:

# Build
docker build --no-cache --rm -t convos-chat/convos .
# Run
docker run -it --rm -p 8080:3000 -v /var/convos/data:/data convos-chat/convos

8080 is the port where you want Convos to be exposed and /var/convos/data is where you want to store settings and logs on the host machine.

We have plans for other ways to install/run Convos. Have a look at issue #285 for more details. We welcome any help and input on making official Convos packages and easy "install buttons".
