Nodebb Docker Alpine Images

  • I noticed that the official images for nodebb are built on the default node images which are built on debian. This produces rather large images. For example the v1.12.1 build is 1.39gb. I built the 1.12.x branch off of the alpine image and it is 569mb in size.

    Is there a reason that we aren't using alpine by default for the official images? Would it be possible to publish both debian based and alpine based official images? It seems like it would be easy to just keep a parallel Dockerfile for alpine and build and distribute both images.

    Alpine is great, but pretty niche. I would think that Ubuntu, Fedora (my pick), and CentOS would all make sense before Alpine if we are going to get multiple images.
