Examples

Various examples are maintained in the repository. The sections below highlight a few particular ones.

Bedrock compatible server

Using the GeyserMC plugin with a Paper server (or similar) "enables clients from Minecraft Bedrock Edition to join your Minecraft Java server". The example also includes Floodgate which "allows Xbox Live authenticated Bedrock users to join without a Java Edition account".

Lazytainer - Stop Minecraft container based on traffic

Monitors network traffic to the Minecraft containers. If there is traffic, the container runs, otherwise the container is stopped/paused.

By using Lazytainer with the docker-minecraft-server a somehow similar behaviour to Lazymc can be archived.

      - lazytainer.group.minecraft.inactiveTimeout=600 # 10 minutes, to allow the server to bootstrap. You can probably make this lower later if you want.
