Any of you out there experienced in creating docker containers, can you recommend any tutorials, videos etc that would point me in the right direction to figuring out how to create a docker container for iqfeed.

As discussed above, the docker container from bratchenko use to work perfectly and all of a sudden broke. I haven't been able to get it working again so i've just been using Wine. Wine is fine, but for my use case I really need to run iqfeed without a gui,....just how it was used using bratchenko's docker container.

So i've started reading up on docker, trying to figure things out. But im such a beginner at this I have my doubts as to whether or not ill be able to figure out how to create my own one.

Any suggestions on tutorials etc would be welcome. Any things to keep in mind with the goal being to run iqfeed in a container?

Many thanks.


I'm not as up to speed on Docker as I should be.

That said, there is a way to get this working on a headless machine. I followed the instructions here and have it running on a headless machine. I did need to install xfce on the machine to get this working. Been running it for about 6 months this way without issue.
