    Providing Official Docker Image?

    Hi

    I have no idea into which forum this fits, so I'll post it here.

    There was recently a short discussion about using Docker to run LMS. I really like the idea, and especially the aspect of being able to move the server to different hardware, backup of settings, Docker image of MusicIP, ...

    But there are quite a few Docker images available for LMS. My question is:

    Would it be possible, and would there be interest, in creating an "official" LMS Docker image (which could interact with the MusicIP Docker image as I think that would be a great feature!)? Is there anybody here who would be interested in doing this? I will likely be setting up a new Pi 3 running OpenMediVault (which contains a docker as a plugin) and will than use a Docker image and the MusicIP image (likely https://hub.docker.com/r/justifiably...chmediaserver/ and https://hub.docker.com/r/justifiably/musicip/ as a starting point).

    Any comments on this? Experiences?

    I don't know if justifiably is listening here as well?

    Providing Official Docker Image?

    I think it might be a nice idea for some installations. But as long as
    you'd still have to have a startup script for the Docker image, need to
    configure a command line to define the music folder etc., installation
    isn't really easier than installing a .deb file, is it?

    I actually think an LXC image would be a better bet than a Docker.
    Pi3 pCp/LMS storage QNAP TS419p (NFS)
    Living Room - Joggler & SB3 -> Onkyo TS606 -> Celestion F20s
    Office - Pi3+Sreen -> Sony TAFE320 -> Celestion F10s / Pi2+DAC & SB3 -> Onkyo CRN755 -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Dining Room -> SB Boom
    Kitchen -> UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) - Pi2+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones
    Bedroom (TV) - SB Touch ->Sherwood AVR ->Mordaunt Short M10s
    Everything controlled by iPeng

    Agreed, although I think een Snap or Flatpak package might be an interesting option too, especially for the 7.9 branch.

    But there are a lot of distributions without deb package manager.
