sen: terminal user interface for docker engine

Summary

sen enables you to manage your containers and images interactively directly from command line. Interface is similar to htop, alot or tig.

Owner

Current status

Detailed Description

Features:

  • it can interactively manage your containers and images:
    • manage? start, stop, restart, kill, delete,...
  • you are able to inspect containers and images
  • sen can fetch logs of containers and even stream logs real-time
  • all buffers support searching and filtering
  • sen receives real-time updates from docker when anything changes
    • e.g. if you create a container in another terminal, sen will pick it up
  • sen notifies you whenever something happens (and reports slow queries)
  • supports a lot of vim-like keybindings (j, k, gg, /, ...)

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora will be probably the first distribution having sen natively packaged. Benefit is the possibility to manage containers and images interactively instead of manual docker cli usage.
