Docker Alpine Base

1.3.0

Provides a base Alpine Linux Docker image with a minimal set of tooling. Great for being used as a foundational image for building on top of like, for example, the Docker Alpine Ruby image.

Features

  • Installs CA Certificates.

  • Installs Bash.

  • Installs Curl.

  • Installs GnuPG.

  • Installs and configures Git (including default branch).

  • Installs OpenSSL.

  • Installs OpenSSH.

  • Installs and configures Vim as default editor.

  • Sets xterm as default terminal.

Requirements

Setup

To set up the project, run:

git clone https://github.com/bkuhlmann/docker-alpine-base.git
cd docker-alpine-base
git checkout 1.3.0

Usage

All versions of this image can be found on Docker Hub. The image can be pulled as follows:

docker pull bkuhlmann/alpine-base:latest  # Pull latest version.
docker pull bkuhlmann/alpine-base:1.3.0   # Pull specific version.

You can also build on top of this image via your Dockerfile:

FROM bkuhlmann/alpine-base:latest  # Latest version.
FROM bkuhlmann/alpine-base:1.3.0   # Specific version.

Development

To contribute, run:

git clone https://github.com/bkuhlmann/docker-alpine-base.git
cd docker-alpine-base

To build, run:

bin/build

To use the console, run:

bin/console

To release a new version (i.e. 1.2.3), run:

bin/release 1.2.3

Releasing without specifying a version will default to tagging the image as the latest image. Best practice is to release both the specific tag and update the latest tag as well. Example:

bin/release
bin/release 1.2.3

Tests

To test, run:

bin/console
bash --version
curl --version
git --version
gpg --version
openssl version
ssh -V
vim --version
