Eloy Garcia has created a very useful project for people who need to handle the electronic DNI to do paperwork or bureaucratic issues. The contribution is free and that is why disseminating it in the media is our duty to promote open source software, and more when they are nearby developers and less known.
What Eloy has created will save us from following the system installation steps for the DNIe and more in which we have a Linux distribution, taking into account that each distro needs different steps for installation. Despite the “revolution” of the DNIe, the problem of its implementation has relegated it to the background.
But now thanks to Eloy García everything will be much easier. He has developed a container for Firefox and that from the browser we can make the entire network of our DNIe reader work. You just have to download it from here and you can start using it.
As Eloy has told us, playing with Docker (the open-source container engine) has created this marvel that allows, without having it installed on the main host, a reader can be connected and be able to use the DNIe on any web page that supports it. Docker allows you to isolate these types of applications and this is how Eloy has done it ...

The download link tells me the following:

It seems that there is a problem, I do not know if it is on time or not.
Hello. Try again…
The same thing happens to me. Is the link not bad?
To make the container work, you must first have docker installed on your distribution. Depending on it, the steps to follow will be slightly different, but in all docker it is in the official repositories. It should also be noted that docker is only available for 64-bit Operating Systems. As an example, in Arch Linux it would be necessary to perform the following steps:
1.- Install docker from pacman: sudo pacman -S docker
2.- Start the service: sudo systemctl start docker.service
Later, it would be necessary to access https://registry.hub.docker.com/u/egarcia/dnie/ and follow the steps described there.
