What DockSTARTer Is¶
- DockSTARTer is a script that installs Docker and other dependencies for you.
- DockSTARTer comes with configurations to run various apps.
- DockSTARTer can be operated through a friendly GUI of terminal menus.
- DockSTARTer can be operated through commands for more advanced users who do not prefer the GUI.
- DockSTARTer is here to give you the freedom to choose what you want to run.
- DockSTARTer allows you to run apps that are not included using Overrides / Introduction.
What DockSTARTer Is Not¶
- DockSTARTer is not a pre-made set of apps that run an exact way (you get to choose what to run and how to run it).
- DockSTARTer does not configure apps for you (think of it more like installing apps as a service, settings inside the app are still up to you, although our documentation will have recommendations).
- DockSTARTer does not configure storage for you (you may use local storage, or cloud storage, multiple disks, raid, etc).
Supported Operating Systems¶
You must be running a Supported Platform or an operating system based on a supported platform. Platforms named below will link to documentation listing compatible versions.
Any operating system based on one of the above (ex: Raspbian) should also work as long as you can install the officially supported script. DockSTARTer will attempt to perform this install for you if possible.
aarch64 system should be able to run one of the supported operating systems listed above. ARM CPUs may have a limited selection of supported containers.
Currently we recommend installing one of the supported platforms above in a VM. In the future we may be able to support the Windows Subsystem for Linux version 2.
