I've been doing a lot of work with Docker recently and have found myself jumping around a bit while configuring my images - write a few commands, build the image, run the image, connect to a container to see what I've done wrong and repeat.

The process doesn't really take too long but it does add up.

This came up in conversation last week at the pub, a friend of mine having the same little hassles. And as you do while drinking and talking tech we came up with a solution: build an editor that does these things for you.

Normally I'd forget we ever had the conversation and move on but I've wanted to build some sort of code editor for a while now and I saw this as my chance. So here it is (the very basic beginnings anyway...) DockerIDE.

You can also check out the code on github.
