Docker Developer tool that integrates each phase of the containerization process: from intuitive container manipulation, image control, to comprehensive metrics.

First Things First: What is Docker and how is it used?

Docker helps developers run their programs within a constant environment that they know will work no matter where in the world it is run. This constant environment is called a container. Through the containerization process, developers are able to package their applications and run them within a standardized environment, combining application source code with operating system libraries and dependencies required to run that code in any environment.

Where Docker Misses the Mark

The issue, however, is that the process of creating and downloading images, starting up containers from those images, and subsequently manipulating those containers, requires disjointed processes that often happen within the command line. Docker is undoubtedly a powerful tool that simplifies the containerization process, but there remains room for further optimization. An application that combines the various functionality of Docker and terminal commands into a simple GUI would undoubtedly save developers time and increase productivity.

The Solution: Dockure

Consequently, our team saw this opportunity and decided to create a tool that allows developers to escape the command line with an intuitive GUI that can be easily downloaded as an electron application. Dockure allows for greater productivity by streamlining the various aspects of managing containers and implements features that do not exist within Docker Desktop.
