Running OCI containers with LXC


One Line Summary

Can LXC be used to run OCI application container images?


For years, LXC has pushed the envelope of Linux containers support by focusing on system containers. In the meantime it has ignored its original use case, application containers. Thanks to work by Docker, CoreOS, and many others, we are at a point now where we can re-use existing standards, formats, and tools to enhance application container support in LXC We will present here some small enhancements which are in progress:
1. OCI container creation template
2. Network support for application containers which come without network admin tools
but the main point of this discussion will be to get feedback on other things lxc needs to do to improve application container support.
