NodeJS on Python Docker
My first few attempts at this failed. Jessie’s Node package is horribly broken and the official Node installation procedure fails when executing lsb_release, because the python3:4 image removes the default /usr/bin/python. I’m not sure why it does this but it’s an easy fix.
ln -s /usr/bin/python2.7.distrib /usr/bin/python
All our python3 testing still functions as expected, and now so do system installed python applications.
