Basic Node JS server template


  • Run by itself or as a parent docker image, exposes volume /var/www as code directory
  • Set COPY_TO_VOLUME to false if contents should not be overwritten (useful in development)
  • Set INDEX_DIR to location of index.js, if not /var/www (useful in development)
  • Contents of /opt/node copied to volume at runtime when is executed
  • Runs nodemon ${INDEX_DIR}/index.js by default, exposes port 80

##onbuild tag
Build an app and run it out of the box.

  • Base the child image on shinymayhem/node:onbuild
  • Place app code in src/ at build-root
    • Add src/index.js, which is run by default
    • Add src/package.json for npm install, which runs during build
  • Build app and run as normal


  • Run debugger web server listening in background with node-inspector --web-port 8080 > /dev/null 2>&1 &, or run in separate screen (not sure how to suppress output)
  • Start script with debugging enabled, e.g. node debug index.js
  • Go to to see debugger window, run script to start server
  • Replicate the conditions at under which the debugger should break (note: might be unable to set breakpoints in anonymous functions until they have been declared, i.e. when server has started)
