Today I will share a quick tip to improve your workflow. In the last years, the docker has gained so much popularity. As a trend, some people tend to run the applications in docker containers instead of on the host machine.
After formatting my computer, I hadn’t installed all the tools I use on my
development workflow and I needed to install the npm dependencies of my
project. I hadn’t installed the node and npm yet, so I decided to run
npm install with docker
docker run --rm -w /opt/ -v $(pwd):/opt/ node npm install
The command above starts a container with a node image, the –rm flag means
that the container should be removed after it finishes running, with the -w
flag I set the working directory inside the container, and with -v, I set the
volume between the host and the container and with the
npm install I run
the command inside the running container.
I hope this tip is usefull for you. If you like it, leave a comment here.
