You find plenty of examples of how to set up a node app in a Docker container or how to use Docker from WebStorm, but most of the times the thing I’m struggling with most is getting the whole orchestra play together, i.e. I want to:

  • host multiple instances of a Node app in Docker containers
  • automatically restart the app on code changes, while developing
  • be able to set breakpoints and take advantage of the full WebStorm goodie bag for debugging
  • differentiate between development and production environments, especially in terms of installed dependencies
  • run our code in a Docker container…

So, I’m switching to medium, since it’s a lot cleaner and easier to write in than wordpress. However, you can still find those articles at
