Full Description

DEPRECATED

The armhf organization is deprecated in favor of the more-specific arm32v7 and arm32v6 organizations, as per https://github.com/docker-library/official-images#architectures-other-than-amd64. Please adjust your usages accordingly.

Supported tags and respective Dockerfile links

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 (rakudo-star). Please see that image's description for links to the relevant Dockerfiles.

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.

Quick reference

What is Rakudo Star?

Rakudo Star is a Perl 6 distribution designed for use by early adopters of the language. It includes a virtual machine (the JVM or MoarVM), the Rakudo Perl 6 compiler, and a suite of modules that users may find useful. This image includes the MoarVM backend for the compiler.
