Sounds great, Mike. My concern is more related to it, how to run the environment as I am in the localhost.

I have a NodeJS API with MySQL and a React website.

And what about the database, is it running on a Docker image for your backend?

Unfortunately, there's no Docker support at the moment the way you'd use it loally. It's a big feature I'm waiting for too.

However, your dev environment runs as a Docker container and you can customize the image that's used. So in my case, I install the DB as part of the environment and can access it on localhost. Docs: gitpod.io/docs/config-docker/
