Remote Development via SSH to a Docker Instance

Index of All Documentation » How-Tos » How-Tos for Specific Environments » Using Wing Pro with Docker »

Docker is sometimes used to host a longer-lived installation of Linux, acting more like a stand-alone system that includes the ability to ssh from the host system into the container. In this case, Wing Pro's Remote Development capability can be used instead, to work directly with files and processes running under Docker (no local copies of the files need to exist).

Setting up remote development via SSH to a Docker container works the same as for any other type of remote host. For details, see Remote Python Development (if the debug process can be launched from the IDE) or Remote Web Development (if the debug process is launched from outside of the IDE).

For more information on setting up SSH access into a Docker container, see SSH into a Docker Container.
