mydesktop

Uses Docker Compose to run desktop apps.

This allows me to easily keep track of the apps I use on a machine, and to get up and running quickly when I leave my laptop on the train, regardless of the operating system of my new laptop.

For an explanation of the thinking behind this module see the blog post Disposable Laptops With Docker Compose And NPM.

To install, do:

npm install -g markbirbeck/mydesktop

Commands can then be run with, for example:

$ mutt

or:

$ jekyll serve
