Build a Docker container that uses WebSockets to expose an existing Linux CLI chess engine as a cloud service. This tutorial shows step-by-step the process for building a Docker container and deploying it as a running container on IBM Containers for Bluemix. It includes sample code and a JavaScript chess game that runs in a browser and illustrates how to consume the WebSocket-based service. You can apply the methods demonstrated to containerize almost any pipe-based Linux application and leverage them as cloud services on Bluemix.
