Localhost:8080 not reachable


I am trying to put remix IDE in a docker (

My Dockerfile is as simple as
FROM node:10

RUN npm install remix-ide --unsafe-perm -g

EXPOSE 8080:8080
EXPOSE 65520:65520

CMD "remix-ide"

Build seems to be working fine and start too.

docker build . && docker run stef/remix

An EXPOSE declaration in the Dockerfile is merly a hint. It does nothing by itself.

You need to publish ports in your dock run command in order to access them from the host or other machines in your networ

Thanks. I am new to docker…
If I am using docker-compose I could do like this?

    build: .
      - "8080:8080"

of course, you use the short syntax.

Exposing a port doesn’t do what you think it does. You need to publish it with the -p (or -P) command or with the ports config in Docker compose.
