Running Cloud Explorer in Docker

The following steps will explain how to run Cloud Explorer from a Docker container. The template will install an Ubuntu container using the FVWM window manager.

Creating the container

First, clone this repo:

git clone https://github.com/rusher81572/cloudExplorer.git
cd cloudExplorer

If you want to use your existing S3 configuration file, copy s3.config from your home directory into the cloudExplorer directory. Modify DockerFile by adding the following before the CMD line:

ADD s3.config /root/

Build the container

docker build -t cloudexplorer .

Running the container - CLI

To use environment variables to store S3 account information when using the Cloud Explorer CLI instead of uploading an s3.config file:

docker run -it --net=host -e ACCESS_KEY='****' -e SECRET_KEY='***' -e ENDPOINT='https://s3.amazonaws.com:443' -e REGION='default' cloudexplorer bash
java -jar /cloudExplorer/dist/CloudExplorer.jar help

If you want to use the Cloud Explorer CLI from a VNC session, skip to "Using the CLI in VNC".

Running the container - GUI

Run the container:

docker run -d -p 6001:6001 -p 5901:5901 cloudexplorer

To access to the container, use a VNC client such as vncviewer to connect to display #1.

vncviewer docker_host_ip:1

The default password for VNC is 123456. You should see the Cloud Explorer GUI after authentication.

Using the CLI in VNC

If you want to use the Cloud Explorer CLI, start a terminal in the VNC session by right clicking on the desktop and choose "xterm". Finally, run the following command:

java -jar /cloudExplorer/dist/CloudExplorer.jar help
