The life cycle events of create,delete and update of docker services are captured to maintain a in-memory register.
At startup all active services are loaded from docker.
A web UI is provided to see the jason representation of the objects. (see --help)
Callbacks can be registered at startup. A callback json object is passed via stdin.

Callbacks are called with "-c script|program .e.g "python -m docker-register -c jq"

run eg: docker-register -c - is a simple democall back that logs callbacks input into /tmp/cb.log
docker-register -c - simple callback that register services to consul on localhost:8500

The callback json object:

{ "type": "service" | "container" , "operation": "register|unregister|update" , "data": { "ports":[ { "PublishedPort": [PORT], "TargetPort":[PORT] .. ], "labels": {}, "id": "THE ID" , "name": "THE NAME]" }

"type": "service",
"operation": "register",
"labels": {
"name": "cfssl",
"env": "prod"
"ports": [
"PublishedPort": 8888,
"TargetPort": 8888
"name": "cfssl",
"id": "mq6cluihpbe89in6743r3cn1b"

To install the python module run: python install
