The alpine-plus-plus Docker image is designed for shell scripting with bash and GNU tools like gawk, as well as git, while keeping the image size small. It is based on Alpine Linux but adds git, bash, findutils, coreutils, and gawk.
For more information, see my blog post on DEV: gnu-on-alpine and alpine-plus-plus: Two Lightweight Containers for Implementing GitHub Container Actions with Shell Scripting.
alpine-plus-plus supports the following platforms: linux/386, linux/amd64, linux/arm/v6, linux/arm/v7, linux/arm64, linux/ppc64le, linux/s390x.
The source repository is maintained on GitHub. The images are built on Github and pushed to Docker Hub, as well as the Github Container Registry using Github Actions.
Each image pushed to Docker Hub and the Github Container Registry is tagged as follows:
You can use the pre-built image from Docker Hub or the Github Container Registry.
Docker Pull Command:
docker pull cicirello/alpine-plus-plus:latest
Pull from the Github Container Registry:
docker pull ghcr.io/cicirello/alpine-plus-plus:latest
Use as a base image in a Dockerfile:
FROM cicirello/alpine-plus-plus:latest # Rest of the Dockerfile goes here
Or use as a base image (via the Github Container Registry):
FROM ghcr.io/cicirello/alpine-plus-plus:latest # Rest of the Dockerfile goes here
For a specific example usage, refer to the Dockerfile of the generate-sitemap GitHub action.
