Zip Download of KV Store

Zip Download of KV Store


# This is a template for a Dockerfile used to run acts in Actor system.
# The base image name below is set during the act build, based on user settings.
# IMPORTANT: The base image must set a correct working directory, such as /usr/src/app or /home/user
FROM apify/actor-node-basic:v0.21.10

# Second, copy just package.json and package-lock.json since it should be
# the only file that affects "npm install" in the next step, to speed up the build
COPY package*.json ./

# Install NPM packages, skip optional and development dependencies to
# keep the image small. Avoid logging too much and print the dependency
# tree for debugging
RUN npm --quiet set progress=false \
 && npm install --only=prod --no-optional \
 && echo "Installed NPM packages:" \
 && (npm list --all || true) \
 && echo "Node.js version:" \
 && node --version \
 && echo "NPM version:" \
 && npm --version

# Copy source code to container
# Do this in the last step, to have fast build if only the source code changed
COPY  . ./

# NOTE: The CMD is already defined by the base image.
# Uncomment this for local node inspector debugging:
# CMD [ "node", "--inspect=", "main.js" ]
