Docker's Remote API network layer module.

docker-modem will help you talking with Docker, since it already implements all the network strategies needed to support all Docker's Remote API endpoints.

It is the module powering (network wise) dockerode and other modules.


Getting started

var Modem = require('docker-modem');
var modem1 = new Modem({socketPath: '/var/run/docker.sock'});
var modem2 = new Modem(); //defaults to above if env variables are not used
var modem3 = new Modem({host: '', port: 3000});
var modem4 = new Modem({protocol:'http', host: '', port: 3000});
var modem5 = new Modem({host: '', port: 3000}); //defaults to http


You can connect to the Docker daemon via SSH in two ways:

  • Using the built-in SSH agent.
  • Implement your own custom agent.
//built-in SSH agent
var modem1 = new Modem({
  protocol: 'ssh',
  host: 'ssh://',
  port: 22

//custom agent
var customAgent = myOwnSSHAgent({host: 'ssh://', port: 22});
var modem2 = new Modem({
  agent: customAgent,


  • Tests are implemented using mocha and chai. Run them with npm test.
  • Check dockerode tests, which is indirectly co-testing docker-modem.
