Licode Docker Image
To run a Licode docker container you have two options:
- You can build your own image using the Dockerfile we provide and then run the container from it or
- you can run the container directly from the image we provide in Docker Hub.
Both options require that you have docker installed on your machine.
Run the container from the latest release in Docker Hub
The easiest way to run licode is to use the image we provide in Docker Hub. In this case you have only to execute the run command. But now the image name is lynckia/licode:version where
version is the release you want to use:
MIN_PORT=30000; MAX_PORT=30050; sudo docker run --name licode -p 3000:3000 -p $MIN_PORT-$MAX_PORT:$MIN_PORT-$MAX_PORT/udp -p 3001:3001 -p 8080:8080 -e "MIN_PORT=$MIN_PORT" -e "MAX_PORT=$MAX_PORT" -e "PUBLIC_IP=XX.XX.XX.XX" lynckia/licode
Note If you do not specify a version you are pulling from
Note If you do not want to have to use
sudoin this or in the next section follow these instructions.
Where the different parameters mean:
--nameis the name of the new container (you can use the name you want)
-pstablishes a relation between local ports and a container's ports.
PUBLIC_IPtells Licode the IP that is used to access the server from outside
MAX_PORTdefines the udp port range used for webrtc connections.
- Alternatively to the previous two options you can use
--network="host"to let the container use the dock network and avoid NAT.
- the last param is the name of the image
Once the container is running you can view the console logs using:
sudo docker logs -f licode
To stop the container:
sudo docker stop licode
Additionally, if you want to run a single Licode component inside the container you can select them by appending
--basicExample to the
docker run command above.
Build your own image and run the container from it
You have to git clone Licode's code from GitHub and navigate to
docker directory. There, to compile your own image just run:
sudo docker build -t licode-image .
This builds a new Docker image following the steps in
Dockerfile and saves it in your local Docker repository with the name
licode-image. You can check the available images in your local repository using:
sudo docker images
Note If you want to know more about images and the building process you can find it in Docker documentation.
Now you can run a new container from the image you have just created with:
MIN_PORT=30000; MAX_PORT=30050; sudo docker run --name licode -p 3000:3000 -p $MIN_PORT-$MAX_PORT:$MIN_PORT-$MAX_PORT/udp -p 3001:3001 -p 8080:8080 -e "MIN_PORT=$MIN_PORT" -e "MAX_PORT=$MAX_PORT" -e "PUBLIC_IP=XX.XX.XX.XX" licode-image
