[#1] Make image more configurable
In addition to basic variables
OBSFS4_ENABLE_ADDITIONAL_VARIABLES set to
1, all the
variables prefixed with
OBSFS4V_ (with their values) are passed to torrc
(with prefix removed). That make it possible to configure virtually
everything using environment variables.
OBSFS4_ENABLE_ADDITIONAL_VARIABLES=1 OBSFS4V_AccountingStart=day 0:00 OBSFS4V_AccountingMax=10 GBytes OBSFS4V_RelayBandwidthRate=200 KBytes OBSFS4V_RelayBandwidthBurst=1000 KBytes
AccountingStart day 0:00 AccountingMax 10 GBytes RelayBandwidthRate 200 KBytes RelayBandwidthBurst 1000 KBytes

/etc/tor/torrc. The variables or put after the basic variables and or
displayed (with the corresponding values) during the container start. For the
majority of cases, displaying set values at startup is very useful, however,
for some sensitive values it might lead to a potential security concern. We might
wait for the first request of that kind and enhance the script to define another
property to disable value printing (at the cost of more complex and less readable
- I am not good at naming. Feel free to propose some better prefix and/or variable names.
- The docker bridge setup guide has to be updated - I can do that once we are ready with merging that MR.
- It would be probably good to wait with the next image publishing until some IPv4/6 related issues in 0.4.5.x (such as tpo/core/tor#40302) which might affect running in a containerized environment are effectively fixed.
