This month, we’ve got some new extensions so good, they’re scary! Docker Extensions build new functionality into Docker Desktop, extend its existing capabilities, and allow you to discover and integrate additional tools that you’re already using with Docker. Let’s take a look at some of the recent ones. And if you’d like to see everything available, check out our full Extensions Marketplace!
Do you need to build and test a container friendly pipeline before sharing with your team? Or do you need the ability to perform continuous integration (CI) or debug failing tests on your laptop? If the answer is yes, the Drone CI extension can help you! With the extension, you can:
- Import Drone CI pipelines and run them locally
- Run specific steps of a pipeline
- Monitor execution results
- Inspect logs

Open Source Docker Extensions
This month, Docker celebrated Hacktoberfest, a month-long celebration of open-source projects, their maintainers, and the entire community of contributors. During this event, Docker worked with the community to contribute to our open source Docker Extensions — and encourage developers to create their own open source extensions.
In fact, here’s a list of open source extensions available in our Marketplace:
- DDosify – High performance, open-source, and simple load testing tool written in Golang.
- Drone CI – Run Continuous Integration & Delivery Pipeline (CI/CD) from within Docker Desktop.
- GOSH – Build your decentralized and secure software supply chain with Docker and Git Open Source Hodler.
- JFrog – Scan your Docker images for vulnerabilities with JFrog Xray.
- Lacework Scanner – Enable developers with the insights to securely build their containers and minimize the vulnerabilities before the images go into production.
- Meshery – Design and operate your cloud native deployments with the Meshery extensible management plane.
- Mini Cluster – Run a local Apache Mesos cluster.
- Okteto – Remote development for Docker Compose.
- Open Source management tool for PostgreSQL – Use an embedded PGAdmin4 Open Source management tool for PostgreSQL.
- Oracle SQLcl client tool – Use an embedded version of Oracle SQLcl client tool.
- RedHat OpenShift – Easily deploy and test applications on to OpenShift.
- Volumes Backup & Share – Backup, clone, restore and share Docker volumes effortlessly.
Hacktoberfest generated a lot of great extensions from our community that aren’t yet available in the Marketplace. To check out these extensions, visit our Hacktoberfest Github Repo. All of these extensions can be installed via the CLI, and you can visit our docs to learn how.
