Just wanted to let you know that the LFE Docker images have been updated and pushed to Docker Hub:
lfex/lfe:latest points to 1.3-23.0-alpine, which compressed weighs in at a cool 49 MB. These images are based off of the lfex/lfe bleeding-edge branch which contains several community-contributed fixes and the latest development work from Robert (which, in combination, haven't been released yet).
For newcomers: to jump into an LFE REPL, you don't need anything other than docker installed on your system:
$ docker run -it lfex/lfe:latest
Currently supported images (LFE v1.3-devel + various Erlang releases) with their uncompressed sizes:
These images have not been extensively tested, so if you find any bugs, please report them!
The one test that I did run on all of the images was the following expression sent to the ENTRYPOINT via docker run lfex/lfe:VERSION -eval ...:
(lists:foldl #'*/2 1 '(1 2 3 4)))))))
