Short Description
Automated Alpine Linux Base image built from scratch on a Raspberry Pi 3/Intel NUC.
Full Description


Container for Alpine Linux Base Builds

This image serves as the base rootfs container for Alpine Linux.
Built from scratch using the minirootfs image from here.

The image is tagged respectively for 2 architectures,

  • armhf
  • x86_64

Get the Image

Pull the image for your architecture it's already available from
Docker Hub.

# make pull
docker pull arpanpal010/alpine-base:x86_64


# make
docker run --rm -it \
  --name docker_base --hostname base \

# make stop
docker stop -t 2 docker_base

# make rm
# stop first
docker rm -f docker_base

# make restart
docker restart docker_base

Shell access

# make rshell
docker exec -u root -it docker_base /bin/bash

# make shell
docker exec -it docker_base /bin/bash

# make logs
docker logs -f docker_base


If you have the repository access, you can clone and
build the image yourself for your own system, and can push after.


Before you clone the repo, you must have Git, GNU make,
and Docker setup on the machine.

git clone <repository url>
cd <repository>

You can always skip installing make but you will have to
type the whole docker commands then instead of using the sweet
make targets.


To locally build the image for your system.

# make build
# fetches latest minirootfs
docker build --rm --force-rm \
  -t arpanpal010/alpine-base:x86_64 \
  --no-cache=true .

# make push
docker push arpanpal010/alpine-base:x86_64


Currently built daily on a RaspberryPi3 (armhf builds) or IntelNUC
(x64 builds). Docker hub builds maintained by arpanpal010.
