While Docker is still most popular for packaging and running Node.js apps in containers, it has security and scalability shortcomings for production systems and build pipelines. Recently alternatives have emerged to build container images without Docker. Each of these address common problems: building without elevated privileges, reproducible results, caching of intermediate layers and scaling CI/CD in larger organizations.
We first introduce the basic structure of a container image and compare the build process for tools supporting Node.js. After demonstrating their usage, we give guidance for selecting the right tool – which might not always be Docker.
