[typo] --privileged of course

https://openshift3swagger-claytondev.rhcloud.com/ (the secure address) will also work, if you coerce your browser to allow it to load JS from (non-secure) localhost. Under Firefox and Chrome there is a small "shield" icon in the url bar to let you know it has blocked something which you can click to unblock it. Allowing a potential MITM to do arbitrary things with a REST API running in a privileged container on your host... strikes me as unwise. At least with https it's only Clayton we need to be paranoid of :)

Pretty cool :)
