Discussion on: Reducing Docker image size of a Nuxt SSR application

My initial concern was about "why even have node_modules in final docker image at all", and I actually was hoping for 100Mb decrease. But couple of minutes after posting the suggestion I actually realized that, well, nuxt-start is a Node application itself, and it will likely require a lot of dependencies to work - because that's just the reality of Node applications ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. So the only gain would be due to removal of a slice of node_modules content that is required by yarn build but not by nuxt-start. But small gain is still a gain 🙃
