Minimal Node.js Docker Images for Rulerr

Version v4.6.2
built on Alpine Linux.

This base image is based upon mhart/alpine-node but uses alpine as its base container.

Example Dockerfile for your own Node.js project

If you don't have any native dependencies, ie only depend on pure-JS npm
modules, then my suggestion is to run npm install locally before running
docker build (and make sure node_modules isn't in your .dockerignore) –
then you don't need an npm install step in your Dockerfile and you don't need
npm installed in your Docker image – so you can use one of the smaller
base* images.

FROM rulerr/alpine-node

ADD . .

# If you have native dependencies, you'll need extra tools
# RUN apk add --no-cache make gcc g++ python

# If you need npm, don't use a base tag
# RUN npm install

CMD ["node", "index.js"]


As Alpine Linux uses musl, you may run into some issues with environments
expecting glibc-like behavior – especially if you try to use binaries compiled
with glibc. You should recompile these binaries to use musl (compiling on
Alpine is probably the easiest way to do this).
