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.
