Mounting a Volume and accessing from Kitematic(Beta)


(Cmelion) #1

Expected behavior

Access mount point in host filesystem by clicking on mounted folder link under “VOLUMES” in Kitematic(Beta)

Actual behavior

Host folder is empty other than an npm-debug.log.
webserver is no-longer accessible and container has to be removed, restart has no effect.
The console shows:

npm info it worked if it ends with ok
npm info using npm@2.15.1
npm info using node@v4.4.3
