Launch Docker containers under Windows

Diese Seite gibt es auch in Deutsch

How does it work: how does Windows get to the Linux kernel?

In order for Docker to be used in Windows, a Linux kernel is required. The reason for this is that Docker builds on features of the Linux kernel and absolutely needs it to run the containers. The Linux kernel, and therefore Docker, is therefore provided in Docker Desktop via a small Linux virtual machine.

Docker Desktop shows us an overview of the running containers:

Docker can of course also be managed using the command line commands, as you are used to from Linux.
The command "docker ps" can be used, for example, to display the running containers:

PS C:\Users\user> docker ps
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                    COMMAND                  CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                NAMES

Nextcloud Server Docker | Setup + https: Let's Encrypt [ssl]
To synchronize contacts, appointments, and photos of my NAS, I tested Nextcloud and thus turned my back on other cloud providers for my private data. Thanks to Docker, the installation is easier and more flexible than ever, allowing Nextcloud to run on almost any hardware.

Home Assistant Docker Conbee 2 and Zigbee2MQTT / deCONZ
Thanks to numerous integration options,Home Assistant is a simple platform for controlling a wide range of smart home devices. Compared to ioBroker, I found it much easier to get started with Home Assistant. While for ioBroker I was still searching for which frontend I could use for my dashboards, with Home-Assistant I had a ready-made system out of the box. Home Assistant's Lovelance dashboards can be easily clicked together in the GUI and adapted for special customizations in the code editor...

Commissioning Zigbee2MQTT in Docker - step by step
Zigbee2MQTT is an open source Zigbee bridge which can be easily integrated into existing smart home solutions thanks to the MQTT network protocol. As an example, Zigbee2MQTT combined with MQTT broker Mosquitto and Home Assistant can collect, display, record and control data from Zigbee devices. The setup described here uses Docker as a base.
