Development in docker?


(Daniel Strong) #1

I’m thinking of doing some development on or around discourse. I’ve read the guides, but vagrant (or, more specifically, the kvm plugin for vagrant) doesn’t play very well with Arch Linux. What are the pros and cons of hacking discourse in a docker instance versus using vagrant?

Right now, the docker images we provide are only recommended for production use.

The only caveat to using a docker instance to hack on discourse would be to actually create a development friendly image :wink:

I know @sam started building one but it isn’t finished/polished yet.

We have this now :slight_smile:

Still needs more polish and traction (unfortunately mac is just super duper slow when it comes to filesystem mounting)
