Welcome to Docker-Fabric’s documentation!

Docker-Fabric provides a set of utilities for controlling Docker on a local test machine or a remote production environment. It combines Fabric with extensions to docker-py in Docker-Map.

The project is hosted on GitHub.


  • Integration of Docker-Map’s container structure into Fabric deployments.
  • Complements Docker API commands with command line shortcuts.
  • Uses Fabric’s SSH tunnel for connecting to the Docker Remote API.
  • Fabric-like console feedback for Docker image and container management.


Docker-Fabric is being used for small-scale deployment scenarios in test and production. It should currently considered beta, due to pending new features, generalizations, and unit tests.
