Saturday MP Show #16: Trying out Docker Compose Watch

In this episode I try out the new Docker Compose Watch developer feature that synchronizes files on the host and the container. Similar to Docker Volumes. It won’t replace Docker Volumes for for me, at least not yet. Are you using, or thinking about using, Watch?

I did encounter a known bug where Docker Watch won’t run again after a Ctrl-C stop. You can find a workaround for the issue here.

Thanks to Docker for creating Docker. That sounded weird. Anyway it has been an invaluable tool for creating development environments for my clients.
