June 22, 2015

In the last two years, software development had taken a step forward with the advent of the Docker. For the uninitiated, a Docker is a tool that automates the deployment of applications by packaging them with their dependencies in a virtual container, eliminating the need for virtual machines.

Docker has streamlined the process of application development on Linux servers, and Open Analytics has streamlined the creation of Docker files with Architect’s new Dockerfile Editor.


To install the Dockerfile Editor, first click Help -> Install New Software

Next, add the URL http://docker-editor.openanalytics.eu/update as a new repository.

Finally, select the “Dockerfile Editor” and click next. NOTE: You must first de-select the “Group items by category” option.

Using the Dockerfile Editor
