Convenient cli app for docker volume management.

Project description

# docker-volume-manager
Manage your named docker volumes using this simple script.


### Managing docker-volumes with a simple script.
-----
### Usage:

1. Clone this repository:

`git clone https://github.com/ansrivas/docker-volume-manager.git`

2. Go to the directory and install this locally:

`cd docker-volume-manager && pip install -e .`

3. To save a named-docker-volume:

`docker-volume-manager save --volume <existing_named_volume>`

4. To load an already saved local volume to a named-docker-volume:

`docker-volume-manager load --volume <new_volume_name> --path <absolute_path_to_your_saved_volume>`

5. More options can be seen by using the help:

`docker-volume-manager --help`

6. A simple use case could be to backup files:
```bash
# cat backup_script.py
import os
import subprocess
import time

files = os.listdir('./')
tars = [f for f in files if f.endswith('.tar.gz')]
to_keep = sorted(tars)[-7:]
for tar in tars:
if tar not in to_keep:
os.remove(tar)

command = ["/usr/bin/docker-volume-manager", "save", "--volume", "your_docker_data_volume", "--interactive","False"]
subprocess.check_output(command )
```

###### Disclaimer: Do not use it directly in a production environment. Test it locally before using it out there.
