This is an attempt to mirror the build process from philcryer/min-wheezy, but on Debian GNU/Linux Jessie and while this isn't as small (yet), it is 79.84 MB, it's far better than other Debian 'minimal' Docker images here.
If you just want to use this image, pull it and configure what you want:
docker pull philcryer/min-jessie
To use this image in your own project, use this FROM line in your Dockerfile:
My old build docs are over here: philcryer/min-wheezy for now...
