A drop-in replacement to npm install on OS X using Docker


Brings down and builds npm dependencies in the context of a Linux kernel and build environment. This is a useful if you develop on OS X, but want to use the exact same npm dependencies that will be used in production (Linux).


docker pull imichael/npm-linux


You can use this in any directory that has a package.json file in it. Just run:

docker run -it -v "$PWD:/src" -it imichael/npm-linux

If you have npm modules that are in private git repos, you can also do:

docker run -it \
 -v "$PWD:/src" \
 -v "$HOME/.ssh/id_rsa:/root/.ssh/id_rsa" \

The above command mounts your ssh key into the container while it's being ran so that npm can use it. Both commands will grab all
modules and build in Linux then save to node_modules/ in the current directory of your host operating system (OS X).


docker pull imichael/npm-linux:latest


All code for this container is here.
