Node 10.x was released on 2018-04-24 (but that’s the default version when using apt-get)
I have needs to have both Python and Node.js installed in running container. I can get the latest version of python in a container using:
FROM python:buster <== Debian based
How do I get the latest version of node.js (16.10.0) installed on Debian (in a Docker container)
Whe I do this:
FROM python:buster RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y nodejs npm
I get these versions of node:
and when run in the container give a long statement about no longer being unsupported.
What’s up with the package repo that ‘apt-get’ pulls from, that it will not install later versions of node (14.x or greater)?
If I pull from:
FROM python:alpine and include these lines RUN apk -v --no-cache --update add nodejs-current npm
I will get node 16.x version, which makes it easy. I don’t have to do anything else.
Is there something equivalent for python:buster (Debian based)
I would really like a one or two liner in my Dockerfile and not a pages of instructions with a dozen commands to simply get node in the image.
I would appreciate any tested/proven reply. I am sure a number of others have the same question. Other stackoverflow articles on this subject are convoluted and do not provide the simple solution I am hoping to find that is available with pytyon:alpine
There is a reason I need python:debian and cannot use python:alpine in this one use case, otherwise I would chose the latter.
Is there a way some how to get a package repo maintainers attention to show me how to get a recent version (14..16), into the apt-get repository?
It appears many people are having issues with this.
