# Dockerex

Dockerex is a lightweight Docker Remote API Client for Elixir that supports SSL connection to a Docker Host or a Docker Swarm manager.

 Dockerex is tested against latest [Docker Remote API v1.24](
## Installation

The package can be installed as:

  1. Add `dockerex` to your list of dependencies in `mix.exs`:

  def deps do
    [{:dockerex, "~> 0.1.0"}]

  2. Ensure `dockerex` is started before your application:

  def application do
    [applications: [:dockerex]]
  3. Config your docker host in `config.exs`
  config :dockerex,
  host: "",
  options: [
    ssl:  [
      {:certfile, "/path/to/your/cert.pem"},
      {:keyfile, "/path/to/your/key.pem"}
You may also establish a connection to the docker engine over a unix socket. To
do this, set the host variable in your config to `"http+unix://PATH/"`. Note
that `PATH` has to be URI-encoded, i.e. the default socket path would be

## Usage
 Dockerex is a lightweight client, which means you need to specify the endpoint and original docker params in a map format.
Before making any requests, you have to start the HTTP client by calling

 Some examples:

  result ="containers/create", %{"Image": "nginx",
                                                       "Tty": true,
                                                       "HostConfig": %{"RestartPolicy": %{ "Name": "always"}},
                                                       "Cmd": [""]})

  cid = result["Id"]"containers/#{cid}/start")"containers/#{cid}/stop")
  Dockerex.Client.get("containers/#{cid}/logs?stderr=1&stdout=1&timestamps=0&since=#{DateTime.to_unix(DateTime.utc_now) - 5}")
