Kinesalite - Use an AWS Kinesis emulator for your dev work

AWS Kinesis is an amazing tool which is also very cheap.
But sometimes there might be cases where you just want to have a local machine in place to emulate it. 
Here's where Kinesalite, https://github.com/mhart/kinesalite, comes into play.
If you'd rather skip all the nonsense of installing nodejs and g++ and whatnot in order to make it work, you can now use it with docker: docker run -d -t -p 4567:4567 dlsniper/kinesalite:1.4.1
More info about the docker instance here: https://registry.hub.docker.com/u/dlsniper/kinesalite
As it's my first ever docker image, if you see any issues, please let me know.
Hope you like it and find it useful.
