Last night at the Lancaster Linux meetup, I talked to Alex about improving the Docker Image’s Dockerfile.
I had some trouble with an earlier Python Image (3.6) that didn’t include some of the latest versions of my Python libraries so I switched to a Debian Image with Python 3.7.
He suggested that I used a more recent Alpine Linux Image to save space and to remove some of the extra pip3 calls that created additional layers.
He also suggested setting up docker compose.
He sent me my first pull request and I integrated it in the Dockerfile.
