Payload Type docker containers are located at
Apfell/Payload_Types/each with their own folder. The currently running ones can be checked with the
sudo ./status_check.sh script. Check A note about containers for more information about them.
Containers allow Apfell to have each Payload Type establish its own operating environment for payload creation without causing conflicting or unnecessary requirements on the host system.
Payload Type containers only come into play for a few special scenarios:
Outside of these scenarios, the payload type containers aren't used. This is why payload types can be declared External Types without causing much issue for Apfell overall.
For more information on editing or creating new containers for payload types, see Payload Type Development.
