Installing the Image

$ docker pull jmfirth/webpack

Running the Image

The image preinstalls webpack and webpack-dev-server for use in the interactive docker shell. Any valid webpack and webpack-dev-server command can be run.

Example: Install Npm Dependencies

An example of installing project npm dependencies.

Note: Assumes that project.json exists at source root.
Note: Yarn is also available globally if you prefer!

$ docker run \
  --rm \
  -i \
  -t \
  -v /path/to/source:/app \
  jmfirth/webpack \
  npm install --no-bin-links

Example: Watch and Serve

An example of watching and serving the app using webpack-dev-server.

Note: Assumes that default webpack.config.js exists at source root.

$ docker run \
  --rm \
  -i \
  -t \
  -v /path/to/source:/app \
  -p 3000:8080 \
  jmfirth/webpack \
  webpack-dev-server --hot --inline --progress --host 0.0.0.0

Example: Build

An example of building the app with webpack.

Note: Assumes that default webpack.config.js exists at source root.

$ docker run \
  --rm \
  -i \
  -t \
  -v /path/to/source:/app \
  jmfirth/webpack \
  webpack

Full Example

Create a docker machine:

# create a docker machine called "site"
$ docker-machine create site --driver=virtualbox

# get environment variables to new vm
$ eval "$(docker-machine env site)"

Obtain and prepare source:

# get some source that uses webpack
$ git clone https://github.com/petehunt/react-webpack-template.git src
$ cd src

# install npm dependencies
$ docker run \
  --rm \
  -i \
  -t \
  -v /path/to/src:/app \
  jmfirth/webpack \
  npm install --no-bin-links

Modify the webpack.config.js file to watch by polling:

watchOptions: {
   poll: true
}

Serve the app:

# serve app through webpack-dev-server
$ docker run \
  --rm \
  -i \
  -t \
  -v /path/to/src:/app \
  -p 3000:8080 \
  jmfirth/webpack \
  webpack-dev-server --hot --inline --progress --host 0.0.0.0
