An easy-to-use, locally-hosted web app for developers and engineers to visualize and manage their Docker Networks in real-time.

This tool is best used before and/or during the development of a Docker Compose YML file.


Description provides developers with the tools needed to visualize and manage a Docker Network. Developers will have the ability to view their networks in both a list view and graphical view. Developers are also able to create new networks, delete current networks, add containers to a network, and remove containers from a network.

DockerNet’s interface allows users to easily and seamlessly navigate between networks. This feature proves most useful during the early development of a Docker Network configuration.

DockerNet is designed to be used by developers who are new to the “Docker-verse” and appreciate having a visual aid. It also benefits seasoned developers who are designing a Docker Compose configuration as well as a means of verifying a Docker compose file is correctly configured and behaving as expected.


  • Visualize Docker Networks
  • Add/Remove Containers to Docker Networks

Getting Started


  1. Latest version of Docker


  1. Clone Repo to local device – git clone
  2. Navigate to the DockerNet directory in terminal of chioce
  3. Install required packages on local device – npm install
  4. In the root directory rename .env.example file to .env


  • Frontend and Server Ports are defaulted to 8081 and 3031, respectively
  • These can be updated in the .env file found in the root directory

How to Use

  1. On your local device open Docker and ensure you have containers running
  2. Navigate to the DockerNet directory in terminal of chioce
  3. Start app using using the following command – npm start
  4. Wait for app to load in your default browser


Create Network


Delete Network


Navigate to Network


Add container to Network


Remove container from Network


List view and Graph view


Looking Ahead


Here’s a list of features currently being considered by the development team:

  1. Updating Data Visualization to include more robust container and network information
  2. Updating Data Visualization to provide the same functionality as List Display
  3. Updating Main Display to include all Network/Container information in a single view
  4. Incorporating Docker Desktop features such as starting and stopping containers
  5. Dark Mode
