I am running my board through docker and I have been fighting with Docker a bit trying to get things to work.
Firstly, I added a line to the Dockerfile of:
npm i grunt grunt-contrib-watch grunt-cli
Then I also have this persistence setup within compose.
This then puts my plugin just outside of the /usr/src/app folder, so then I can docker exec -it into the container and npm link my plugin into the /usr/src/app folder (which I think is the way I am supposed to do this?)
I am wondering if anyone happens to know though, how I can execute grunt watch while also having the verbosity of ./nodebb dev as I am quite new to node and working with this board, so the more output I can get as to what I mess up the better, lol.
As of now, all I was doing was starting up the container like this:
command: bash -c "grunt"
I also don't seem to see my plugin in the forum's available plugins after I linked it. I went into my plugin folder, did 'sudo npm link', then I went into /usr/src/app and did 'sudo npm link nodebb-plugin-my-plugin', which did give me some output that didn't look erroneous, so I figured it must have been correct, but it still didn't show up, I tried to run a rebuild just to make sure to no avail. Looking back now, I do see the actual plugin within /usr/src/app/node_modules after linking.
If anyone has any suggestions, or spots anything I might have done incorrectly, I would definitely appreciate the input.
