THESE IMAGES ARE VERY EXPERIMENTAL; THEY ARE PROVIDED ON A BEST-EFFORT BASIS WHILE docker-library/official-images#2289 IS STILL IN-PROGRESS (which is the first step towards proper multiarch images)
PLEASE DO NOT USE THEM FOR IMPORTANT THINGS
This image is built from the source of the official image of the same name (

If you are curious about specifically how this image differs, see the Jenkins Groovy DSL scripts in the
tianon/jenkins-groovy GitHub repository, which are responsible for creating the Jenkins jobs which build them.

What is Node.js?
Node.js applications are designed to maximize throughput and efficiency, using non-blocking I/O and asynchronous events. Node.js applications run single-threaded, although Node.js uses multiple threads for file and network events. Node.js is commonly used for real-time applications due to its asynchronous nature.
How to use this image
Dockerfile in your Node.js app project
FROM node:4-onbuild # replace this with your application's default port EXPOSE 8888
You can then build and run the Docker image:
$ docker build -t my-nodejs-app . $ docker run -it --rm --name my-running-app my-nodejs-app
Run a single Node.js script
For many simple, single file projects, you may find it inconvenient to write a complete
Dockerfile. In such cases, you can run a Node.js script by using the Node.js Docker image directly:
$ docker run -it --rm --name my-running-script -v "$PWD":/usr/src/app -w /usr/src/app node:4 node your-daemon-or-script.js

Support for older versions (down to 1.6) is provided on a best-effort basis.
Please see the Docker installation documentation for details on how to upgrade your Docker daemon.
