▲ 4 ▼ Backer - docker container backup.
Think about a small company that have to build fast and easy realiable services for a intranet (eg. gitlab, jenkins ...) The fastest way is to deploy this services as a docker containers and manage them for example with a reverse proxy... Taking care about the backup system is an heavvy work, I ended up building this small utility. At this time I only need to do local backups for the active and running containers and their mounted volumes.
I'm not sure about the
info command, if it's worth and useful i will do it right :)
backer [type] [flags] backer [command] Available Commands: help Help about any command info retrieve informations about backups previously done list list current available backups version shows the version of the executable Flags: -h, --help help for backer --outDir string output directory for saving backups (default "backup")
backer full Executes a full backup for all active and running containers.
Usage: backer restore [containerName] [revision] [flags] Examples: backer restore test 06.11.2018_16.03.48

Not sure I understand the need for this - if you are using containers it should be for instances which can die and you don't care what happens to them after. People sometimes put stuff in containers that they shouldn't (document storage, databases), which would be better hand-managed or using a central service for.
