I'm experimenting with `guix pack`, particularly with the docker format. I want to generate a tarball like so `guix pack -f docker bash figlet` -- and then after loading with docker, be able to run the packed commands. No $PATH is set in the container, so after digging around in the tarball, I decided to try something like this: `docker run -ti profile:lhavpi5ngs7infrh9b4nppriy4azgbwv /gnu/store/ars9lm9jk9hgdifg0gqvf1jrvz5mdg1j-bash-4.4.12/bin/bash` -- and that works! woo!
This is much nicer than using an unverified Debian or Ubuntu layer in a docker container, just have a way of installing a few packages -- which is really all we need in containers 99% of the time. What have other people done in this direction? What are some ideas for setting up the $PATH in a nice way? cheers, Devan
