The goal of this article is to show how to get a Node.js application into a Docker container.
Setting up Node app
Create a directory and run the command npm init to initialize the app and install initial dependencies
Create a file app.js and write this code inside it.
The next step is to add Docker to it. So, create an empty file named Dockerfile and put this code inside it
Now add .dockerignore file to prevent your local modules and logs to be copied onto your Docker image and add this two files
Now we need to build our Docker image and run it. This can be done by the following command :
- NodeJS | Building simple REST API in express
- Nodejs | Automatic restart NodeJs server with nodemon
- Nodejs | DNS
- Nodejs | Jimp
- Nodejs | DNS | setServers()
- Web-Socket in NodeJS
- Nodejs | Web Crawling using Cheerio
- Encrypting Data in NodeJS
- Difference between NodeJS and AngularJS
- Signup Form Using Nodejs and MongoDB
- Cowsay in Nodejs using Requests library
- Nodejs – Connect Mysql with Node app
- NodeJs - Handling invalid routes
- Nodejs - Connect MongoDB with Node app using MongooseJS
- Nodejs | authentication using Passportjs and passport-local-mongoose
