LiveCode community server on Docker

Hi David,

Setting up a Docker image is fairly simple.  I am guessing you are wanting to run a LiveCode Linux standalone in a Docker container that listens on a particular port?

In that case, it would be a matter of configuring a Dockerfile that uses a base Docker image for whatever distro you prefer, copies the standalone into it, and sets it to execute on startup of the container…  For what you are doing the Dockerfile might look something like:

FROM: ubuntu:14.04

EXPOSE 5000 (put what port you are using here)

COPY yourstandalone /linux/path/to/yourstandalone

ENTRYPOINT [“/linux/path/to/yourstandalone”]
CMD [“-p parameter”, “-y another parameter”]

Then, making sure that the Dockerfile and standalone are in the current directory, build it…. "docker build -t image name ."

Hope that helps,
