Arch Linux on Docker Revisited

Back in 2014 when I was learning about Docker I got around to making a base image for Arch Linux. It was a really fun exploration and I got to know a lot more about how Docker worked from it. I'd highly suggest trying to make your own sometime!

Docker has matured a lot since, and I've enjoyed following it. I took some time this last week to revisit my Arch Linux image and ensure it's still functional. I wasn't surprised when the scripts continued to work just fine, even after two years.

With nothing broken, I knew I only had one choice. I had to improve it!


Arch Docker Baseimage

Problem

You need a base image of Arch Linux that you're sure is a-okay.
