Welcome do docker “easy” world

Build, Run, and Sync Kusama, just like

docker run -it --rm polkasource/substrate-client:kusama-latest --name write-name-here
docker run -it --rm polkasource/substrate-client:kusama-v0.6.0-5020fa4 --name write-name-here
docker run --rm -it chevdor/polkadot:0.5.1 polkadot --name write-name-here

Why 2 options?

2 different docker hub repos is better 2 that one.

docker run --rm -it chevdor/polkadot:(Loading)
This is ok.

After pull the docker img, just start sync the chain, have to be in another shell or run with (-d) for detached mode.

docker run -it --rm polkasource/substrate-client:kusama-latest --name write-name-here
