Full Description

Sources: https://github.com/toubiweb/docker-node-runner

What is included?

This image is based on official node.js docker image (Debian stable, Wheezy).

Current version includes:

  • node 0.12
  • general tools: wget, vim
  • node production tools: forever

The default docker user is "prod".

The default directory is /app/dist

How to use

Use the image to run your application with node

Mount your application sources as a volume (using -v option) and run your build command (e.g. gulp build).

docker run -v /home/me/dev/my-app/dist:/app/dist -t toubiweb/docker-node-runner node app.js

You can override the default directory using -w option:

docker run -v /home/me/dev/my-app/dist:/app/build -w /app/build -t toubiweb/docker-node-runner node app.js

Use with forever

docker run -v /home/me/dev/my-app/dist:/app/dist -t toubiweb/docker-node-runner forever node app.js
