Short Description
A minimal Debian 8.x (Jessie) base image.
Full Description


A lot of the publicly available Docker base images and derivatives are pretty large for being light-weight, minimal images, having unneeded applications installed and taking up space. The goal here is to create an absolutely minimal base Docker image, based on Debian. To accomplish this the docker-squash tool is used to free more space in the container before committing and checking in the image here. Another image to try is also a minimal BusyBox.
