Short Description
Browsersync image with proper termination, exposed ports and volumes
Full Description


Run browsersync inside a Docker container.
Exposes default port on 3000 and UI port on 3001.

Why this image

This image is kept up to date with the latest NodeJS release (version 6 at the time),
and avoids common pitfalls with containerized Node processes failing to terminate
on Ctrl-C.

For the motivation itself, see my blog post Improving dev environments: All the HTTP things


docker run --rm -it \
  -p 3000:3000 \
  -p 3001:3001 \
  -v "$(pwd)":/source \
  blackxored/browersync \
  start --server -files '**/*.css' --files '**/*.html'

Refer to BrowserSync documentation for a list of available command line options.
