While getting ready to teach an “introduction to penetration testing with docker ” class I stumbled across the Shipyard-Project which brings an amazing web based interface to docker.
Installing on Debian on DigitalOcean is as simple as starting a droplet and running these two commands:
curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ | sh
curl -sSL https://shipyard-project.com/deploy | bash -s
Update: Running scripts you have not read through is a really bad idea (almost as bad as suggesting you do so). Make sure you take a look at the docker and shipyard scripts before you run them.
From there you have an amazing docker interface at http://yourip:8080

While the CLI for docker isn’t hard to learn this does seem like the “Killer App” that could help people adopt containers. I know I will be using it to manage my containers from here on out and recommending it to as many people as I can.
