I finally "docker-ized" the FindMyCat cloud side of things; what this does for folks is provide a very easy way to setup the cloud components with just a few commands. 

Github repository for Docker files:

Brief overview: 

There are three components to the docker files

- Traccar Container

- EMQX Container

- NGNIX Proxy Manager Container

Run the three commands noted on the Engineering page link and you should be good to go. Please note that the EMQX Rule engine still needs to be setup manually, instructions are on the Engineering page.

Future improvements I'm thinking of are to build resilient containers; so they can be restarted/recreated if something goes wrong; providing reliablilty. Tracked here in the github issue #1
