In order to make working with Thrift more comfortable I have created a Docker container using an Automated Build facility. You may read about the image inside the Docker Hub (search for evarga/thrift). To use this container just issue:
docker pull evarga/thrift
In this way the user's development environment may be extended without changing anything on the host machine. Moreover, all precompiled libraries are also available inside the container, which may be retrieved via Docker's 'cp' command. See the description for evarga/thrift for more information about the usage.
