Like many folks here I’m struggling with the reliability of Docker containers. I’ve tried several in the last few weeks:
At one point meteorhacks/Meteord was the de facto solution. But it’s maintenance and documentation suffered, and all these others cropped-up.
Some are very thoughtful. But none has full coverage. Either it may not work with a certain meteor version, fail on dockerhub automated builds, or fail with the current published meteor 1.4.2
I’m disappointed that MDG does not see this as a critical issue. Or is happy to see us struggle since it might be competitive with galaxy. See @sashko response here: https://github.com/meteor/meteor/issues/7475#issuecomment-255557593
But my response to that is: I need both galaxy and docker. I need galaxy for my front end and docker for my workers.
My request to the authors of these images is that we get together and author a definitive reference image.
One that is backwards compatible, and tested against dockerhub and quayio, and has many eyes on it.
Any one else interested in defragmenting the docker solutions?
