Portainer - A simple management UI for Docker

Hello :slight_smile:

I’d like to introduce to you Portainer ( a lightweight and easy to use management UI for Docker.

It allows you to manage your containers, images, volumes and networks on any Docker host or Swarm cluster.

It can be ran on both Docker for Linux and Docker for Windows ! A demo is available at (use the credentials demo / tryportainer).

We’d love to have your feedback !

Thanks. It really is a very useful UI. it started without any issue. All I had to do was to execute the following command on my swarm manager:
docker run -d -p 9000:9000 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock --name portainer portainer/portainer --swarm

Ah awesome ! Feel free to give us some feedback :slight_smile:

Very easy to run and use :slight_smile:
Would be great if one could see stats, logs and connect to the console of all swarm services running on all nodes cluster-wide

Awesome! I love the simple and clean UI. :smiley:

@mchu4sac We’re working on a better support for Swarm mode :slight_smile:

If you want to make any suggestions, please open an issue there:

@nguoianphu thanks a lot :slight_smile:

Web interface is very cool. I can show anything I need on the UI.
Thank so much because of good UI to manger container.

I find this article at midnight. I don’t go to sleep because the UI is very cool, do not waiting to in the morning to show off with colleagues in my company :slight_smile:

Glad you like it ! Give us some feedback :wink:


I would like to server portainer docker container on a virtual path , maybe /portainer. How can I do it. Right now it listens directly on the exposed port

You’ll need to use a reverse proxy to serve Portainer under a virtual path. We have an example using Nginx available here:

Cool, I have issues with HAproxy. Will keep posted ,in the meantime if any clue let me know.

Portainer is great, I recently ran it against our swarms with >100 containers each - worked flawlessly!

PS: We created our swarm with standard docker tools with our own toolbelt called - it’s just a containerized environment for docker, compose and machine.
