Docker Machine driver for Scaleway

We just released the Docker Machine driver for Scaleway; You can now use Machine to create Docker hosts on Scaleway servers.

This tool comes as an alternative method of provisionning Docker engines on Scaleway and won’t replace the Docker Instant-App.

Using Docker-Machine, it is now very easy to create a Swarm cluster in minutes: script (output).

It is now easy to manage a Swarm cluster of hybrid servers (x86_64 + armhf).

It is also very convenient to use a Swarm cluster composed of Raspberry PI using the Hypriot OS and Scaleway servers together.

I just received this email from someone at Google :)

Dear Manfred-

As you may know, we here in Google’s Open Source Programs Office are always interested in learning about new projects and people in the open source community. To that end, we asked our co-workers to help us by nominating people outside of Google that they thought were doing great things in the world of open source.

Uriel Corfa (Googler) believes your work on assh deserves to be recognized. To show our appreciation for this work, we would like to send you a special thank you gift and a MasterCard worth $250 USD that can be used at merchants and ATMs worldwide.

At your convenience, please fill out our form [0] with the physical address you would like us to use to ship your gift and MasterCard (it will be shipped via FedEx). If you are located outside of the US it could take a bit longer for your gift to arrive due to customs delays. You must fill out the form by Wednesday, April 20 to receive your funds.

Our 3rd party vendor, Payoneer* will contact you via email to provide more information about the $250 USD MasterCard.

Again we thank you for your great work in the open source community, we appreciate all that you do. Please contact Stephanie Taylor ( if you have any questions.



Thank you Google for this program, it’s wonderful to receive an award spontaneously.


docker-diff is a mini tool to quickly compare the contents of two Docker images.

Docker + multiarch = 💖

Docker + multiarch = <3

Recently, I started the multiarch organization on GitHub.

Multiarch aims to provide

1. Docker images builds of Linux distributions for multiple architecture

full list on multiarch on Docker hub.

2. tools around multiarch

  • multiarch/docker-goxc: a ready-to-use goxc in Docker, build GO projects for multiple architectures from an x86_64 host
  • multiarch/true: minimalist Docker images for multiarch, ideal for testing runtime
  • multiarch/qemu-user-static: qemu-user-static Docker images for all architectures + a register special image that helps to configure the Kernel binfmt support
  • multiarch/crossbuild: multiarch cross compiling environments, cross-build C/C++ programs using Docker from an x86_64 host

3. Proof-of-concept around experimental multiarch support in Dockefile


A curated list of SSH resources.

In the continuity of the awesome lists, I decided to release my own one about SSH, fortunately for me this subject was not yet created.

This first version contains

  • the tools I’m using everyday as a devops.
  • but also my piece of code: assh and ssh2docker.
  • the projects I love.
  • and the one I read the code.

Feel free to share the list and contribute !
