Docker Build Base Image

This image provides a base image for which Ionic based android apps can be built upon or extended from to create an development environment.

Use this image to build an ionic app

$ docker run -it --rm --name ionic-app -v "$PWD":/usr/src/app -w /usr/src/app weikinhuang/ionic-android-build create-release-apk

Create a Dockerfile in your Ionic app project

FROM weikinhuang/ionic-android-build

# expose the ionic development ports
