Can't run TensorFlow JS in a Docker container

I’m using the JavaScript version of the library. I have struggles to get it running in Docker with the Node Images.

Can somebody help me to get it running? I get errors about missing dependencies.


FROM node:16-alpine


"@tensorflow/tfjs-node": "^4.0.0",

Import in a script

import * as tf from "@tensorflow/tfjs-node";

The actual error in the terminal

Error: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

maybe @Jason or @ThatJenPerson can help with your question

Looks like you are missing some c lib in your docker image. I am not a expert for Alpine, here are some stackoverflow post that provides a solution.

FYI, you might see other missing libs beyond this one, you might need to follow the same path to fix those.

Actually I solved it by using FROM node:16 the base node image, not the alpine or slim one. I also had some problems in the process where docker didn’t update the image properly, which delayed my solution. Thanks for the hints guys!
