Linux in a browser

Now that you’ve got docker set up on your Mac or Windows box or even on your Linux machine or NAS or chromebook (see, what can you do with it? Well, I could send you over to but that just shows you some of what’s available in the world of docker containers. Instead, how about running Linux in a docker container that you can access locally in your browser? Yeah, I know, it’s a bit funky in that you may already be running Linux, with or without a GUI, but it’s an easy project and even kinda fun.

Head on over to for the cookbook to bring up Webtop (more info at including different base images like XFCE Ubuntu, KDE Alpine, etc). And, BTW, there are quite a few more images available over at so check them out, too. That link to lists other images.
