What is the smallest OS I can install on RPI to host dockers?

boot2docker (Tiny Core Linux) is the smallest I know.

I haven't used it extensively but there is HypriotOS ( https://blog.hypriot.com/ ) which is based on raspbian and designed to run docker.

Ubuntu's Core 18 might also be worth checking out: https://ubuntu.com/download/iot/raspberry-pi-2-3-core

How many dockers?
Gentoo64 on a 4B4 can run 14+ Alpine machines.

For now I am only going to run 3 dockers to host 3 MCPE phantom proxies (allows XBOX users connect to hosted MCPE servers)
So I guess the one that provides the most performance.

Thanks!

@epoch1970 where can I get the boot2docker image for Raspberry Pi 3 B+?

That wasn't good advice, sorry.
I did not realise there was no build of boot2docker for ARM, only for Intel. That won't ever change since Docker has officially shelved boot2docker some time ago. Balena apparently has had an ARM port project, but that looks very much dead as well.

I suppose Hypriot is a more practical option.

Yeah, Balena also got rid of the macvlan driver/plugin so I can't use Balena. Will try Hipriot. Thanks.
