Giving up on rails on Docker

Having gone through the process of preparing s Rails image from a ruby build has ballooned out to over 1.2GB even after removing the compiler and associated packages.

I even tested running a bundle update to identify the gems that need native compilation: mysql2, bcrypt, therubyracer.

And then… And then after downloading the application running the bundle update borked when bcrypt 3.1.9 is needed as a dependency instead of the 3.1.10 installed. Given the time it takes to compile gems, it’s not reasonable or sensible to try and stay on top of deploying rails applications to a container.

Okay, so we’ll try to do a WordPress deployment instead.
