syncserver with Docker

Hi Dominik,

I was the one that originally created the Docker container for
server-syncstorage. I created it so I could easily run the functional tests
against a prototype golang implementation of the server[1].

The docker containers are here:

The containers are automatically built, tested and published from CircleCI
when we cut a new release. They contain the same code as we run in
production so they should work.

There's no docs :(, but these tips/examples should get you started:


The has most of the logic for running the container.
So you should be able to:

  > docker run mozilla/server-syncstorage:v1.6.12 server

and it'll run with the default example.ini configuration.

If you want to use your own configuration you can:

  > docker run -v '/local/path/to/config.ini:/app/config.ini' -e
"SYNC_SETTINGS_FILE=/app/config.ini" mozilla/server-syncstorage:v1.6.12

- this mounts your local config file into the docker container
- tells it where it is via the SYNC_SETTINGS_FILE environment variable

Here's how I use the docker container to test my prototype go-syncstorage

Let me know if you have any more questions / run into any issues.
