I have an application that consists of a web server, with node.js + Express, that also utilizes the file system, that calls external python programs.
The python programs are utilizing external packages (FreeCAD) packages.
I want to run everything inside a docker container.
For two days, i have been reading stuff and i have to say docker is very confusing.
I found examples of standalone node programs, or standalone python programs.
But what is the best approach to run my application inside a container?
Do i use a Dockerfile, in order to pull the neccesary docker images and then i configure them?
Or do i have to dockerize my existing application?
EDIT: My current DockerFile:
FROM ubuntu RUN DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get update RUN DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get install -y software-properties-common #install freecad RUN add-apt-repository ppa:freecad-maintainers/freecad-daily RUN DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get update RUN DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get install -y freecad-daily
