For more documentation on how Outrigger images are constructed and how to work with them, please see the documentation.
Node <= v6
Based on outrigger/servicebase, which provides a CentOS-base, s6 init system and confd configuration templating.
Node v8, v10
Based on official Node images, specifically the Alpine variant, and adds special functionality on top. Currently that includes:
- tini init system
- Coordinated support for Yarn and npm
- Run services as the
nodeuser instead of as
We have switched to a simple templating mechanism to ease support for multiple node versions, assuming we want to handle future node versions in a manner identical to v8.
The examples in this repo use Yarn, but you can use npm as well.
Docker Run - Node REPL
docker run --rm -it outrigger/node:8
Docker Compose - Project-style
For a more thorough example of how you would use outrigger/node:2-node8 or greater in a "real" project, check out ./examples.
api: '3.4' services: app: image: outrigger/node:8 container_name: projectname_app command: "yarn install && yarn start" labels: com.dnsdock.name: app com.dnsdock.image: projectname network_mode: bridge volumes: - .:/code
Node v4 and v6
In the current version of Node v4 and v6, npm install and start routines are built-in to the image. This makes them more project-centric out of the box.
docker run --rm -v ~/Project/node-app:/code outrigger/node:6
Outrigger images use Environment Variables and confd to "templatize" a number of Docker environment configurations. These templates are processed on startup with environment variables passed in via the docker run command-line or via your docker-compose manifest file. Here are the "tunable" configurations offered by this image.
This only applies to Node v4 and v6.
SKIP_NPM_INSTALL: If this is set (to anything) it will not run
npm installwhen the container boots.
