Docker on Windows Server 2016 TP4 Downloading git in container through powershell
I have an angular UI and a nodejs api. I am currently running windows server 2016 TP4 in Azure.Here are the steps I go through:
- I am able to remote in, create images, create containers based off those images, and attach to those containers no problem.
- I pulled a nodejs image from docker:
docker pull microsoft/nodeand then created a container from that image:
docker run --name 'my_api_name' -it microsoft/node cmd
That command takes me into the container via a windows command prompt. I type
powershellwhich takes me into a powershell shell and i can run npm commands.

- Not enough ram to run whole docker-compose stack

- Docker DB connection refused
- cannot connect to cassandra docker with cqlsh
My question is, how do I install git onto this container? I want to reach out to the repository holding my app, pull it down and run it in this container. I will eventually push this container image up to the docker registry so clients can pull it down and run it on their windows env.

You can do it like this in admin shell:
iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1')) cinst -y git
Ideally you wouldn’t add git to the container and try to pull your repo into it (that will also get messy with credentials for private repos
You should do your source control management on your host and then build the source code into a container. It’s not yet there for the Windows Dockerfiles, but the Linux ones have ONBUILD. It should be possible to replicate that for Windows.
