    Watchtower was also a very convenient discovery and is more suited to non-prod orchestration for which K8s would be overkill.

    I can't imagine how anyone would even figured this out. How long did you cook it in glass with a water bath covered in the docs and is pretty easy to see something was wrong with them and yeah it’s better to lie on the spot! And gave a better explanation then my friend did! (She does winds)

    Oh don't worry, there's a few solutions to that, I'll add them to the guide over time. If you need a TL;DR, you can use something like Watchtower to properly handle automated updates of your containers but there can be a little nuance to this depending on how you want to schedule that and which containers you want updating.

    In my home server I use docker for all my services. I use Watchtower to keep them up to date, works great. Also you don't really unit test services that get developed by someone else.
  • Container update question | 2021-03-27
    Here is the doc! As for what I saw yeah it will automatically pull as long as it has Access to the docker socket . As you are using podman, I actually don't know how to configure it more, you'll have to check a bit more in the doc
