Microservices with Docker, Alpine Linux, Nodejs, Nginx on Win10 Host

Apology for the last word “Win10”, it’s bit misleading but my main development machine is Dell XPS 13 on Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview. There’s should be a follow up to this blog hopefully on my headless Ubuntu Server. BTW, it’s a PITA to get this thing working on my Win10 machine - too many wrangling with Windows GUI DNS settings, Docker vEthernet adapter then a mixed of CLI scripts, some won’t work on plain CLI commands later then I discovered that wrapping it inside docker-compose.

NodeJS Development Inside Docker on Windows 10

Wait, what ? Moving to Windows10 (6 months ago as of this writing) as my main OS is a bit hard, just a little bit. I use commandline ALL THE TIME and I can’t live without the developer’s Swiss army knife on my side - tiny tools that make our life easier: grep, sed, ps, tree, ssh, find … “Bash On Windows” was a good strategy from Microsoft - I didn’t bother about switching to Windows and I didn’t think twice, I was more worried about which machine to buy.
