Containerizing Python And MySQL

Allison Tharp walks us through containerizing a Python-based game she had created:

I’m really amazed at how easy creating the container was.  It took only 11 lines to spin up a Linux environment on my own machine.  The majority of the commands (7 of the 11) are simply adding the files and dependencies.  I’m also pretty shocked that I didn’t have to do anything to my Python script to get this to work.  I had assumed I would need to do something but, I didn’t.  Very cool!  Also, by using the following command while my Python script is running, I see that this is only taking up 1.3 GB!

Here’s how you get an image with […]
