Docker image builder

Grocker - a Docker image builder for Python applications

Grocker allows you to bundle your Python applications as Docker image while keeping the image size as minimal as possible.

Grocker uses debian:jessie as its base image. But we have plans to allow using a lightweight distribution such as Alpine Linux in a near future.

Grocker is hosted on Github at Grocker full documentation is available on
