Currently Untested and Highly experimental
Documenting the proof-of-concept of creating a shared composer cache directory and npm cache directory.
Docksal does not have a mechanism to manage user created volumes. In the event that the volume needs to be dropped, you will need to stop all existing projects, drop/recreate the volume, and then do reset cli in all projects that were mounting this external volume.
Run the following fin commands to create the volumes:
fin docker volume create composer-cache fin docker volume create npm-cache
services: cli: environment: - COMPOSER_CACHE_DIR=/cache volumes: - composer_cache:/home/docker/.composer/cache - npm_cache:/home/docker/.npm volumes: composer_cache: external: true npm_cache: external: true
(This is similar to how the global docksal_ssh_agent volume is mounted in cli.)
