Docker Tips

Here are some tips for using dropbox with fuego:

Starting [edit section]

This will execute the container indicated by the (which is usually what you want)

special privileged container [edit section]

To add a new device to be accessible inside the docker container, please edit the following line in

CONTAINER_ID=`sudo docker create -it --privileged -v /dev/bus/usb:/dev/bus/usb -v /dev/ttyACM0:/dev/ttyACM0 ... --net="host" fuego`

With above, only "ttyUSBx" and "ttyACM0" will be detected and accessible inside the docker container.

Here are some files that persist:
