Image Contents

This image contains a minimal Linux, glibc-based system. It is intended for use directly by "mostly-statically compiled" languages like Go, Rust or D.

Statically compiled applications (Go) that do not require libc can use the image, which contains:

  • ca-certificates
  • A /etc/passwd entry for a root user
  • A /tmp directory
  • tzdata

Most other applications (and Go apps that require libc/cgo) should start with, which contains all of the packages in, and

  • glibc
  • libssl
  • openssl


Users are expected to include their compiled application and set the correct cmd in their image.
