This version of a baseimage extends the popular phusion/baseimage:
installs essential dev tools: make curl wget host git python
generates ssh host keys, exposes port 22
sets the root password to 'root'
creates a user account with the same name/uid as the calling user (thus created files have proper permissions and the like)
if a ssh key is found: adds that key to the user account for passwordless ssh access
To use this baseimage, you need the
start-node script, found here.
To access your
baseimage container easily via command line, you can enable dns support:
