Docker Indicator

Application indicator for controlling Docker containers.


This software project has been discontinued. Its last released version is also most likely to remain the last available version, unless someone else is interested in its further development.

It also means any filed issues probably won't be ever picked up.

An application indicator for Linux with the following functionality:

  • The menu displays a live list of available containers (both running and stopped). The list is updated automatically thanks to Docker daemon event subscription.
  • A container can be started or stopped by selecting the corresponding menu item.
  • Whenever a container is started or stopped (not necessarily via the indicator), a desktop notification is shown.

Here’s a screenshot:
