docker-gen generates configuration files for host services to make the Dockerized services accessible to them. For example this role can create the required configuration for publishing a Dockerized web-service via the host's web-server. The configuration is based on available Docker container metadata.

This role creates a service and configuration to generate nginx upstream service definitions, which can be used by debops.nginx role to configure Dockerized services, either local or remote, behind an nginx reverse proxy. Other services and templates might be provided in the future.
