Playing around with docker running inside a Vagrant VM and trying to use some services being exposed via HTTP ports makes you ask how to automatically forward the exposed docker ports through Vagrant to the host system. phew
$host> FORWARD_DOCKER_PORTS='true' vagrant up
$host> vagrant ssh
$vagrant> docker run -d -p 49815:5984 -i -t gesellix/docker-example
$host> curl -X GET "http://localhost:49815"
It just worked! If you’d like to have a look at my example project, you can find it at GitHub. I’m going to continue building a complete application backend including CouchDB, ElasticSearch and other toys. You might have better docker or Vagrant knowledge than me, so if you’d have any hints, I’d really like some feedback. Thanks!
