Alpine-based python (compiled from scratch) container
Full Description

Python From Scratch (almost)

NOTE: beta state and not tested yet

This project uses to compile python on Alpine Linux.

PFS should (in theory) be able to compile any python on any box with g++ and make. The image size is not the smallest possible but still smaller than the official ones. The result is around ~135MB

Few extra libs are installed in /usr/local/lib, currently depending on PFS options:

  • libffi:
  • libxml2: Required by lxml module
  • libxslt: Required by lxml module
  • libsmi: Required by snimpy
  • libyaml: Required by PyYAML

Sources and tags

Everything is build by a single Dockerfile which you can find at:

The tag format is <repo-version>-<python-version> where repo-version is the building code version and python version is python's 2 first digits. The supported tags are:

  • latest-3.4: Always pointing to the latest repo version and python 3.4 (3.4.3)
  • latest-2.7: Always pointing to the latest repo version and python 2.7 (2.7.12)
