Week 4: Exploring More Applications!

It’s the last week of Understanding Containers! Let’s try and run some stuff!

Session 4

In this last session of our Understanding Containers workshop, we’re going to run HedgeDoc, Baserow, and WBO.


Here is the link to HedgeDoc’s docker documentation:

Docker Image – HedgeDoc

I also mentioned that they have documentation for their environment variables you can use to configure the container:

Configuration – HedgeDoc

I ran into an issue where the scripts and stylesheets wouldn’t load. After the recording was over, I found out that I just had to set the CMD_URL_ADDPORT environment variable to FALSE. You can check out my working docker-compose file here as a reference:

Taylor’s Hedgedoc docker-compose file


Here is the link to Baserow’s documentation and the docker-compose file we will work from:

Install with Docker compose // Baserow

I also ran in to trouble with Baserow, this time with making an admin account after launching Baserow in the video. I found after Jim and I finished recording that Baserow didn’t like that I put a trailing slash at the end of my URL. I’ll share my working docker-compose.yml file as an example:

Taylor’s Baserow docker-compose file


WBO was relatively straightforward, and here is the URL to the GitHub repository we used:

Techbraintechnologies/wbo – GitHub

Docker Glossary

The Docker Glossary has reached its final form! Check it out!

Week 4 Q&A

We will have our last Q&A session again on Friday at 11am ET in the #understanding-containers-voice channel in Discord!

☑️ Week 4 checklist!

Get HedgeDoc working

If you find another application you want to try to run, post it in the Discord so we can explore it as a group!
