Node.js run from GitHub in Generic Docker Container backed by Dockerized Redis Cache

Lucas Jellema

In a previous article I talked about a generic Docker Container Image that can be used to run any Node.js application directly from GitHub or some other Git instance by feeding the Git repo url as Docker run parameter (see https://technology.amis.nl/2017/05/21/running-node-js-applications-from-github-in-generic-docker-container/). In this article, I create a simple Node.js application […]
