This tutorial explains how to install Swagger Editor inside Docker container on Linux. Commands have been tested on Ubuntu.

Prepare environment

Make sure you have installed Docker in your system. If you are using Ubuntu, installation instructions can be found in the post.

Install Swagger Editor

  • Host network

Run the following command to create a container for Swagger Editor that uses host network:

docker run -d --name=swagger-editor --restart=always --network=host \

docker run -d --name=swagger-editor --restart=always --network=app-net \
    -p 8081:8080 \
