Tiny Container Challenge: Building a 6kB Containerized HTTP Server!

An interesting article from last week: https://devopsdirective.com/posts/2021/04/tiny-container-image/

> TL;DR I set out to build the smallest container image that I could that was still able to do something useful. By taking advantage of multistage builds, the scratch base image, and a tiny assembly based http server, I was able to get it down to 6.32kB!

  1. This is super neat haha, I knew we could get down to ~13m, but the last 2 steps are just awesome, hilarious, and overkill? haha.

  2. Christ. That is a small container. Though that seems quite the journey. I wonder how complex the assembly code is as it must run for ports, and inbound/outbound traffic.
