I’m trying to setup a personal development environment inside a Docker container. I’m using iTerm 2 on macOS and the default “Dark Background” colors.
Outside of Docker,
ls displays directories in light blue like it should. However,
ls inside a docker container displays directories dark blue for some reason. I have already set
$TERM=xterm-256color inside my container using an
ENV line in my Dockerfile. I’ve verified this by echoing
$TERM out inside the container as shown in the screenshots below.
I’m trying to figure out why the colors inside the container aren’t correct and how I can fix this.
I’m starting my container as follows:
docker build -q -t jswny/devbox . && docker run -it -h devbox --name devbox jswny/devbox bash.
Here is my
FROM ubuntu:18.04 RUN apt-get update # Set environment variables ENV TERM xterm-256color # Install essentials RUN apt-get install -y \ make \ cmake \ git \ curl # Install user packages RUN apt-get install -y \ tmux \ zsh # Change default shell to ZSH RUN chsh -s $(which zsh) # Install Oh My Zsh RUN sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh)" # Install asdf RUN git clone https://github.com/asdf-vm/asdf.git ~/.asdf --branch v0.6.3 RUN echo -e '\n. $HOME/.asdf/asdf.sh' >> ~/.zshrc RUN echo -e '\n. $HOME/.asdf/completions/asdf.bash' >> ~/.zshrc # RUN source ~/.zshrc # Remove default .zshrc RUN rm ~/.zshrc # Add custom config files ADD dotfiles /root/ WORKDIR /root # Override this as needed CMD ["/usr/bin/zsh"]
Here is what
ls looks like on my local machine:
And here is what it looks like inside my container:
