Here are the packages as built by the scripts I linked previously: ~/src/racket-alpine/packages/racket-alpine/x86_64$ ls -la total 77392 drwxr-xr-x 2 tonyg tonyg 4096 Aug 29 13:27 . drwxr-xr-x 3 tonyg tonyg 4096 Aug 29 13:08 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 tonyg tonyg 1319 Aug 29 13:27 APKINDEX.tar.gz -rw-r--r-- 1 tonyg tonyg 66637726 Aug 29 13:27 racket-7.0-r0.apk -rw-r--r-- 1 tonyg tonyg 1632592 Aug 29 13:27 racket-dev-7.0-r0.apk -rw-r--r-- 1 tonyg tonyg 6706 Aug 29 13:27 racket-doc-7.0-r0.apk -rw-r--r-- 1 tonyg tonyg 9324919 Aug 29 13:08 racket-minimal-7.0-r0.apk -rw-r--r-- 1 tonyg tonyg 1625139 Aug 29 13:08 racket-minimal-dev-7.0-r0.apk -rw-r--r-- 1 tonyg tonyg 2714 Aug 29 13:08 racket-minimal-doc-7.0-r0.apk
The "full" package is about 70MB. That includes DrRacket. That "doc" package looks pretty broken. I suspect it's a bunch of misc readmes etc; I don't know if the main documentation is included in the "full" package. I just tried the following, and it worked kind of ok: - docker run -it --rm -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix racket-alpine /bin/sh - inside the container, - apk add gtk+ ttf-freefont - export DISPLAY=:0.0 - drracket which makes me think adding another Dockerfile for quickly spinning up a fresh DrRacket instance might be a worthwhile thing to do as well. Hmm.
