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
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.
