Subject Re: Minimal example for docker/fabric
Date Tue, 08 Aug 2017 20:53:01 GMT
Regarding using the Cloudify Docker plugin with ARIA - While the Cloudify
plugin adapter translates ctx usage from Cloudify to ARIA, it may sometimes
be insufficient for running some Cloudify plugins over ARIA - For example,
if said plugin is using other APIs beyond the ctx one to interact with the
Cloudify manager directly.

This means that while some Cloudify plugins may work with ARIA out of the
box, this can't be guaranteed and must be tested for any specific plugin.

>From a quick look I've taken over the Cloudify Docker plugin ( ), I haven't seen
anything that stands out as being incompatible - So if I were you, I'd give
it a try. If you do, please let us know if you were successful or about any
problems you may have run into.
