Earthquake Twitter Client on Fedora, Using Docker

In just a few simple steps, you can have an instance of the earthquake terminal based twitter client up and running in a Docker container. Maciej was kind enough to contribute this gem - no pun intended. It's actually a really cool project and just one of the many apps that can be dockerized. Check out his webpage here and give him a follow.

This was tested on Docker 0.8.0

Grab the dockerfile from either of these locations:


Get the version of Docker

# docker version

To build:

Copy the sources down -


Clone Dockerfile somewhere and run:

$ sudo docker build -t earthquake .
$ sudo docker run --rm -i -name earthquake -t earthquake

Could be run using TMux or GNU Screen


In order to install plugins just follow the steps from earthquake manuals;
Docker will keep those changed/new files untouched.
