coala: Significantly reduce size of the coala docker image
coala provides a Docker image that has coala (coala-analyzer.org) and all official bears and dependencies installed so it can be used for any code analysis supported by coala.
Instructions on how to use this image with Continuous Integration systems like GitLab CI and Travis CI are available in the user manual.
This docker image is pretty large for what it is, making use in CI slow.
The size of the current image is shown in Travis CI when it runs
Currently it is:
$ docker images REPOSITORY TAG IMAGE ID CREATED SIZE coala-docker latest e5825964c10f Less than a second ago 2.553 GB opensuse tumbleweed adf7e79c95ae 3 weeks ago 152.3 MB
