I’ve had a number of people who’ve tried to run node-os, but run into problems deploying docker. See NodeOS/NodeOS-Docker#5
I’m exploring using CoreOS as the base system.
- it comes with docker
- it’s lightweight
- it has a one-step vagrantbox ready to go
Assuming you have Vagrant installed, you can get node-os running with
$ git clone https://github.com/coreos/coreos-vagrant/ $ cd coreos-vagrant $ vagrant up $ vagrant ssh core $ docker run nodeos/nodeos
- @jtenner this should side-step all those ubuntu/docker pains.
I haven’t really explored CoreOS much yet, but it looks promising. Basically CoreOS treats Docker as its package manager, which is pretty sweet. I think these two compliment each other well. To use docker-speak CoreOS is the lightweight cargo ship, and node-os is the lightweight container.
I’m going to explore this more, and hopefully turn this into a blog post.
