For the people like me who don't like tainting the host system with superfluous nonsense like dev libraries :)

It also makes it simpler to get up and running, virtually requiring only docker-compose up -d and you are set to hack.

The image is rather big (about 1 GB) but this is not a problem because it is a build environment and will not be used for distribution.

Instructions are in the README.

# Unfortunately dumping doesn't work without this

Probably, but that will never get fixed, not until the old timers run things :/

Maybe one day remacs will fix it itself, or just remove the misfeature completely.

Yep, I was mostly linking it for future reference :)

Eventually I want Remacs to have a sensible dumping mechanism, at which point this will just work.


Seems to work on my box, and it's a nice addition. Thanks :)
