Create a Docker file for easy self-hosting

For self hosters, this would be a godsend and it could be included in the docker-compose.yml. There are at least two other people who want this feature: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=33557934

I checked how other projects do this:

  1. Create a Dockerfile: https://github.com/sissbruecker/linkding/blob/master/Dockerfile
  2. Create a script to push Dockerfile to make things easy: https://github.com/sissbruecker/linkding/blob/master/build-docker.sh
  3. Integrate in the docker-compose: https://github.com/sissbruecker/linkding/blob/master/docker-compose.yml

What do you think about this?

Definitely not opposed to the idea. And I’m going to look into it shortly.

But there’s a few things that I would like to polish before making it that easy for people to self host. Keep in mind that we haven’t yet reached v1.0. The DB schema is still subject to continue to change dramatically and there’s probably a few instance level settings that should be in configuration files that are still hardcoded here or there.

I would feel a lot more comfortable offering a docker file when nearing the release candidate phase.

tl;dr: I hear you, I’ll be looking into it, but it might take some time as I’m prioritizing feature work to reach v1.0
