Oura provides already built public Docker images through Github Packages. To execute Oura via Docker, use the following command:

docker run

The result of the above command should show Oura's command-line help message.

Entry Point

The entry-point of the image points to Oura executable. You can pass the same command-line arguments that you would pass to the binary release running bare-metal. For example:

docker run -it \
    watch \
    --bearer tcp

For more information on available command-line arguments, check the usage section.

Using a Configuration File

The default daemon configuration file for Oura is located in /etc/oura/daemon.toml. To run Oura in daemon mode with a custom configuration file, you need to mount it in the correct location. The following example runs a docker container in background using a configuration file named daemon.toml located in the current folder:

docker run -d -v $(pwd)/daemon.toml:/etc/oura/daemon.toml \ daemon

Versioned Images

Images are also tagged with the corresponding version number. It is highly recommended to use a fixed image version in production environments to avoid the effects of new features being included in each release (please remember Oura hasn't reached v1 stability guarantees).

To use a versioned image, replace the latest tag by the desired version with the v prefix. For example, to use version 1.0.0, use the following image:
