Service registry bridge for Docker, sponsored by Weave.

Circle CI Docker Hub ImageLayers Size IRC Channel

Registrator automatically registers and deregisters services for any Docker container by inspecting containers as they come online. Registrator supports pluggable service registries, which currently includes Consul, etcd and SkyDNS 2.

Getting Registrator

Get the latest release, master, or any version of Registrator via Docker Hub:

$ docker pull gliderlabs/registrator:latest

Latest tag always points to the latest release. There is also a :master tag and version tags to pin to specific releases.

Using Registrator

The quickest way to see Registrator in action is our Quickstart tutorial. Otherwise, jump to the Run Reference in the User Guide. Typically, running Registrator looks like this:

$ docker run -d \
    --name=registrator \
    --net=host \
    --volume=/var/run/docker.sock:/tmp/docker.sock \
    gliderlabs/registrator:latest \


Pull requests are welcome! We recommend getting feedback before starting by opening a GitHub issue or discussing in Slack.
