Docker SDK for Python

Build Status

A Python library for the Docker Engine API. It lets you do anything the docker command does, but from within Python apps – run containers, manage containers, manage Swarms, etc.


The latest stable version is available on PyPI. Either add docker to your requirements.txt file or install with pip:

pip install docker

If you are intending to connect to a docker host via TLS, add docker[tls] to your requirements instead, or install with pip:

pip install docker[tls]


Connect to Docker using the default socket or the configuration in your environment:

import docker
client = docker.from_env()

You can run containers:

>>>"ubuntu:latest", "echo hello world")
'hello world\n'

You can run containers in the background:

>>>"bfirsh/reticulate-splines", detach=True)
<Container '45e6d2de7c54'>

You can manage containers:

>>> client.containers.list()
[<Container '45e6d2de7c54'>, <Container 'db18e4f20eaa'>, ...]

>>> container = client.containers.get('45e6d2de7c54')

>>> container.attrs['Config']['Image']

>>> container.logs()
"Reticulating spline 1...\n"

>>> container.stop()

You can stream logs:

>>> for line in container.logs(stream=True):
...   print line.strip()
Reticulating spline 2...
Reticulating spline 3...

You can manage images:

>>> client.images.pull('nginx')
<Image 'nginx'>

>>> client.images.list()
[<Image 'ubuntu'>, <Image 'nginx'>, ...]
