Step 9: Run the Sample Application with Docker

Build System Demo

Now that you have published your first Docker container with Habitat, we can run the sample Node.js application locally using Docker *.

With Docker running, execute the following command on your machine:

$ docker pull your-docker-org/your-docker-repo
$ docker run -it -p 8000:8000 your-docker-org/your-docker-repo

Preview the application in your browser

After the container is running, you can open http://localhost:8000in your browser to view the sample app (see image).

*This step is optional and requires you to have Docker running on your local machine. If necessary, head over to the Docker website for insructions on installing Docker .
