ENV MONGO_OPLOG_URL="mongodb://oplogger:oplogger@"


  "dependencies": {
    "phantomJs": false,
    "imageMagick": false
"preBuildCommands": ["sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y build-essential python"],
  "postBuildCommands": [],
  "buildOptions": {
    "mobileServerUrl": false,
    "additionalFlags": false

$ docker build -t scheung/spark2acs .

Do I need to use iptables to ACCEPT Port 22? If so please let me know how to set rules.

If you want to connect to MongoDB from a Meteor app running in a container you probably do not want to connect to localhost. You want to run the MongoDB in a container on the same docker network, and then use DNS entry corresponding to container name, e.g. mongo command would look like docker run -d --name mongo --net meteorapp mongodb, and you would connect to mongo:30001 in the Meteor container, also invoked with --net meteorapp.

So I need to change the definitions within the DockerFile and rebuild? Or just run with different options using the existing definitions?

Hi Nathan,

Could you show with actual example? Cheers
