What I want: dockerize a Node.js web app (I am on Windows)
docker-compose up gets me this error:
Service 'webapp' failed to build: no matching manifest for windows/amd64 in the manifest list entries
As far as I understand that is because there is no Node.js image for windows, and a fix would be to switch to Linux container.
Not enough memory
When I try to switch to a linux container, Docker tells me that I don’t have enough memory. Changing the amount of allocated memory through the settings does not fix it.
version: '3' services: webapp: build: ./Front volumes: - ./Front:./dockerized ports: - 5001:8080
FROM node:alpine RUN mkdir -p ../dockerized WORKDIR ../dockerized COPY package*.json ../dockerized RUN npm install COPY . ../dockerized EXPOSE 8080 CMD [ "npm", "start" ]
I know the original question is pretty old but since I had similar issue last days and couldn’t find good solution in single place I decided to share my experience in solving this.
So, let’s assume you want to run Windows-based Docker container on Windows and use Node.JS inside.
Here are options you have:
Switch to Linux-based Docker container which also can be run in Windows.
First line of docker file might look like this one:
Let’s just assume that moving to Linux-based container isn’t an option for you. There might be several reasons for this (for example, in my case I tried to deploy my Angular app in Linux-based Docker container to local Azure Service Fabric cluster on Windows 10 but it supports Windows-based images only).
In this case you have to move to Windows-based container and there are two more options.
Use any custom Windows-based Docker image with Node.JS already installed (the option proposed by Kush Grover)
Create your own Windows-based Docker image and install Node.JS inside. This last option is what I eventually came up with since I didn’t want to rely on some non-official public custom image.
Here is an example of Windows-based Docker file with Node.JS installation:
FROM mcr.microsoft.com/windows/servercore:1803 as installer SHELL ["powershell", "-Command", "$ErrorActionPreference = 'Stop';$ProgressPreference='silentlyContinue';"] RUN Invoke-WebRequest -OutFile nodejs.zip -UseBasicParsing "https://nodejs.org/dist/v12.4.0/node-v12.4.0-win-x64.zip"; ` Expand-Archive nodejs.zip -DestinationPath C:\; ` Rename-Item "C:\\node-v12.4.0-win-x64" c:\nodejs FROM mcr.microsoft.com/windows/nanoserver:1803 WORKDIR C:\nodejs COPY --from=installer C:\nodejs\ . RUN SETX PATH C:\nodejs RUN npm config set registry https://registry.npmjs.org/ WORKDIR /app # install and cache app dependencies COPY src/WebSpa/package.json /app/src/WebSpa/package.json WORKDIR /app/src/WebSpa RUN npm install RUN npm install -g @angular/[email protected] # add app COPY . /app # start app CMD cd /app/src/WebSpa && ng serve --host 0.0.0.0
A short explanation to this file.
I use Windows-based official image (
FROM ...servercore:1803...) then download Node.JS binaries (
RUN Invoke-WebRequest...) and add some required stuff to registry (
RUN npm config set registry...). Later I use Node.JS NPM commands to install required packages for my Angular app (
RUN npm install) and install Angular CLI (
RUN npm install -g @angular/[email protected]) to be able to run Angular on the container (
Note, that I download Node.JS of version 12.4.0 (latest stable available at the moment) and you might want to use different version.
I hope this was clear enough and somebody will find this useful.
