Apache NiFi 1.1.0 is now available and once again I want to test it in a isolated environment. Docker!
The steps to do this are extremely similar to what has been detailed here (https://community.hortonworks.com/articles/69043/launching-a-nifi-docker-instance.html)
Pull the image
docker pull sunileman/nifi1.1.0
You may find the mirror site is not optimal based on your location. Go here and grab your mirror site. Update MIRROR_SITE parameter in the Dockerfile with your mirror site. The Dockerfile is available here. If you update the Dockerfile you will have to build an image. Do this by running
docker build --no-cache -t sunileman/nifi1.1.0 .
Whether you pulled the image or built a new one, run this to launch Apache NiFi 1.1.0
docker run -it --rm -p 8080-8081:8080-8081 sunileman/nifi1.1.0
NiFi UI should be available here
