This Docker image is mostly for development and experimentation. The development mongodb is used to run the app, which is fine provided there is no desire to archive chats, user passwords, or other settings -- these will be lost/reset if the container is stopped and a new container started. In production, you would probably want to bundle the app and have persistent data through a separate mongodb database.
