Full Description


A minimal, busybox-like container based on Alpine Linux,
that contains apk
package manager to ease installation of extra packages and help you build
smaller development containers.

This is possible thanks to the work from uggedal
on packaging Alpine Linux for Docker.

This project is now build on top of official Alpine Linux
image, only including some convenience packages and scripts on top.


Use this as base for your own containers:

FROM mini/base
RUN apk-install <packagename>

CMD ["/bin/sh"]

And install or extend with packages as you please.

You can find a list of packages you can install on Alpine Linux Packages

Included packages

To get you started, a set of packages have been integrated:

  • curl
  • wget
  • ca-certificates

Without those, installation of remote packages over HTTPS connections was
not possible.


Work on this was made possible thanks to AREA 17.
