-This directory builds a Docker container image for a rockbox build
+Docker build client
+===================
+
+This directory builds a Docker container image for a Rockbox build
client with all toolchains except android.
There is a pre-built client available as built1n/rbclient on Docker
Hub if you would like to avoid having to build all the toolchains. See
-the Docker documentation on how to pull and run it.
+below for how to pull and run it.
+
+Building from scratch
+=====================
-To build from scratch:
+1. Make sure you have Docker installed and running (i.e. `systemctl
+start docker').
-1. Make sure you have Docker installed and running.
+2. Build the image:
-2. Run:
+ docker build . -t myclient
- docker build . -t myclient
+ This will build the image and tag it as `myclient.' The build process
+ can take several hours, as it downloads and compiles every Rockbox
+ toolchain. Fortunately, Docker will cache intermediate images, saving
+ you work if you must rebuild.
- This will build the image and tag it as `myclient.'

-3. To run your client:
+ docker run -e USER=your username -e PASS=anything -e NAME=clientname \
+ myclient
- docker run -e USER=your username -e PASS=anything -e NAME=clientname \
- myclient
+ This will spin up a build image container in the background.
You can also run a bash shell interactively by issuing:
- docker run -it myclient bash
+ docker run -it myclient bash
- This will drop you into a fully-equiped rockbox development

-It is also possible to pull straight from Docker Hub. Run:
+Prebuilt image
+==============
+
+Run:
- docker pull built1n/rbclient
+ docker pull built1n/rbclient
-Then you can use all the commands above, with `myclient' replaced with
-`built1n/rbclient'.
+This will download a pre-built image from Docker Hub (fairly large,

+`myclient' replaced with `built1n/rbclient'.
