Hi, I just started using docker and I what I want to know is if I can actually download with a command a particular package, with its dependencies,inside the Dockerfile, instead of dl'ing the whole category, cause it makes my image too big for no reason.
What I am doing at the moment is just adding: FROM bioconductor/release_flow in the top of the docker file.
The problem is, I only need the flowcore library, which is part of the flow release. I tried running this command, from somewhere else:
RUN Rscript -e 'source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R");library(BiocInstaller); biocLite("flowCore", dep = TRUE)'
but I got some errors, since some dependencies failed to install, rendering the image useless.
