The purpose of this recipe is to explain how to build a docker image with RethinkDB pre-installed and ready to run.
We will do this by creating a Dockerfile that downloads the base image, updates and adds an apt source and then installs the database software.
docker-datafeeder, is my first real world use of, and learning experience of, docker and linux containers.
I needed something to continiously feed a constant stream of data files for processing. The files have time-stamped names, along the lines of “CDR.20121101.225323.abc”
I needed to have the timestamp part of the file name changed to the current time.
I had to be able to deliver multiple streams of files, to multiple servers and also wanted to prevent a serious backlog of files building up in the event one or more systems stopped processing the feeds.
To top it off, I wanted to present a decent UI to the end users of this tool, not just a command line interface.

This is pretty cool. Will use this to create mini rails and scala containers
One of the things that was concerning me was deploying a rails app as easily as possible, in a configuration that only had what was
needed. I was not cerazy on having to install a full blown linux install to deploy a simple little rails app. I searched around for small footprint linux distros (and there are a LOT out there), when I came across docker.
I then found Dokku – Happy days !! This looks awsome.
