Minasan, kon’nichiwa (Japense)(In English - Hello Friends). Hope you folks are having an awesome day at work ! For the past sometime I have been learning and exploring golang.It is an awesome language becoming popular like python and java.Following the reason to implement golang in some of my project’s.I started to implement golang and try golang in the most efficient manner as possible.This year I decided to start this project following my process of learning.As much like as every developer I Hope you find them useful and worth contributing.
One of the most popular container projects in the market is Docker.It has been in the market for very less no. of years.But has gained popularity like nothing else in the market.Since the introduction of Docker project containers have been continously gaining momentum and recognition than before.With time the current methodologies to build containers have been changing and replacing with time.
Turbo is a simple yet powerfull utility for Docker.The main aim for designing turbo main focus is to introduce simplicity,automate the current process to build a flexible enviorment and to make docker usage like never before.Turbo implements simple and regularly used useful commands on a currently installed docker enviorment.It is written in golang.This makes it more compatible with docker.It is lightweight in nature which makes it awesome to use and can be deployed wherever you want.
Why Turbo ?
The real answer to this question is curiosity.I think as a regular docker user myself I wanted to experience some new tools and functionalities with docker.Although I agree,that docker has a beautiful cli that provides almost everything you need to play with containers.But, I guess having everything is never enough.Haha.So I began enjoying adding more options that makes it easy to use and adopt docker in a more useful and interactive manner.Although the journey has just begun.There’s a lot to be done.
There are multiple ways to started using Turbo.For the normal users,
Go to releases sections of the turbo’s github repo. Install the tar file. Untar it.
$ cp turbo /usr/local/bin
Try it out using
If everything is correctly done you should get output something like this:
Turbo: Simple and Powerfull utility for Docker Usage: Turbo [command] Available Commands: backup backups all your docker stuff clean Cleans up all your docker images destroy Erases off all the exited containers harbor installs and configures vmware harbor kickstart restarts all your containers quickly kube Installs and configure minikube for your system ldap Uses to install and configure Openldap log Uses logspout to collect your docker logs monitor To monitor your containers proxy Installs and configure squid3 proxy for your system refresh Completely removes and re-installs docker replica To create Replicas of your containers rkt Installs and configures rkt search Search images from multiple registries ship Transfer your docker images over a remote i.p. version prints the current version number of turbo Flags: --config string config file (default is $HOME/.turbo.yaml) -h, --help help for Turbo -t, --toggle Help message for toggle Use "Turbo [command] --help" for more information about a command.
For people working on golang,they can start using it via
$ go get -v github.com/ramitsurana/turbo
Turbo works on a simple command line based model where you can use the commands built by turbo in a simple and easy to use manner. Some of the commands used are:
- Backup - Backups all your stuff so that you can have a copy in case anything goes wrong.
- Clean - Wipes of all your docker images from your system.
- Destroy - Kills all of your exited containers.
- Kickstart - Restarts all your containers
- Log - Installs and configures logspout on your system
- Monitor - Helps you monitor your docker containers
- Refresh - Removes Docker ecosystem and Installs a new one

- kube - Installs and Configures Minikube on your system
- Harbor - Installs and configures Harbor on your system
- Proxy - Installs and configures squid proxy on your system
- Ldap - Installs and configures Openldap on your system
For me building this project has been a fun and awesome experience.Obviously like any other project there are more stuff to do,ensure ease of access and more fun features for users.In the end,I hope you enjoyed this post and you give it a shot.
