How to set up your own instance of EdRefCard so you can create a card for your HOTAS config in Elite Dangerous. Share with friends, import friends config files and get cards made for those.

What? – This used to be served at https://edrefcard.info but the site has been down recently. So I went to github and found the project, which has some instructions on building a docker container. I took it a step further and placed the edrefcard info needed into Docker Hub.

So now, to set this up locally all you need to do is:

  1. Be on Windows 10.
  2. Install Docker Desktop.
  3. This should install WSL2 and Docker bits and some PowerShell Management cmdlets and prompt for a reboot.
  4. Reboot
  5. Skip the Docker Desktop tutorial. No need to use the UI here.
  6. Open an Administrator PowerShell Window (Win+X and select PowerShell (Admin)
  7. Run the command
    docker run -d --rm --name edrefcard -p 8080:80 jeffstokes72/edrefcard
  8. Allow the Windows Firewall to open the local port 8080
  9. Open your favorite browser and put http://localhost:8080 in the address bar and hit enter.
  10. Enjoy

To recap:

Install Docker Desktop and reboot, open an administrator PowerShell window with Win+X.

Run the command 
docker run -d --rm --name edrefcard -p 8080:80 jeffstokes72/edrefcard

Allow Windows Firewall to open the local port

And then in your browser, go to http://localhost:8080

 

Enjoy!
