Short Description
Fork of that adds Ruby 2.1.9 support
Full Description

Minimal Ruby and NodeJS built on top of Alpine Linux Docker Image (Approx. 50MB)

Self explanatory, ruby build on top of nodejs and alpine image

This will be a great base image for people working with rails applications.
You could get away from using therubyracer gem by using a pre-built nodejs for the javascript V8 engine.

Hope this will help others in the future.
