New Node.js Convenience Image Public Beta

Hey Everyone,

For those who don’t know, we at CircleCI maintain a fleet of Docker images, which we call Convenience Images, for various languages and databases. These images are designed to run your CI environment.

The Docker build system we are using is old and complicated so we’ve been designing a new suite of images. This of course includes a new Node.js image.

If you’re already using CircleCI to build/test/deploy your Node.js project (or want to), I would love it if you could try out our new image. The image is cimg/node with the tag being a Node.js version such as 13.0.1 or 12.13.0.

It’s all open source so you can find the GitHub repo here and the Docker Hub repo here.

We’re looking to:

  1. Provide a Node.js Docker image useful for CI.
  2. Get feedback on if this image is working for your project or if it’s missing something or doing something “wrong” in your opinion.
  3. Get feedback on how this image is working for you if you’re coming from our legacy image, circleci/node.

Note: This is for the regular Node.js Docker image. This doesn’t relate to the -node variant images for other languages, which is not yet ready for Next-Gen images.

Any questions, please let me know, thanks!
