Does it have to be docker? When I faced similar problem, I thought it was wise to invest time in development inside jail, so I wrote Reggae based on CBSD. I'll publish a bugfix version as soon as i get back from FOSDEM so you might give it a try. I wrote few ansible playbooks for services I needed in jail like PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, mail based on postfix+dovecot, etc. Reggae is inspired by docker compose and Vagrant, hence you can run multiple jails per project, like docker compose.
FreeB(eer)S(ex)D(drugs) are the real demons
