I suggest you to use https://hub.docker.com/r/amrit3701/freecad-cli docker image for your web application. In this image, I compiled FreeCAD without GUI and it gives better performance.
@amrit3701 Nice!
Perhaps we can add this to Compile_on_Docker or some variant page?
Yes, we can. Could you please add (FreeCAD Docker CLI) it then I will maintain that page? I am not too good in documentation :oops:

@vocx how would you suggest we document this? Should I split up Compile on Docker to show these 2 alternate docker images or should I make a dedicated page for each one or another alternative ?

Separate page sounds fine.
Always add the important information to your posts if you need help. Also see Tutorials and Video tutorials.

Heads up: I've also created a ticket at https://github.com/FreeCAD/Docker/issues/2 to address FC having multiple docker images.

What about collapsing divs of each docker image ? I ask because the page has already been translated to German.
Pros: Everything on one page, easy to find. Translations don't need to be moved.
Cons: Not able to link to specific section headers in collapsed divs.

Then don't collapse it. Just add the new information.

Thanks @Kunda1 for taking up the charge. Once you finished, please drop the page link here, then I will add more information. :)

Hi @Kunda1,

I have documented FreeCAD docker (CLI mode). Here is the link: https://wiki.freecadweb.org/FreeCAD_Docker_CLI_mode.

Just confused where should I add this page: maybe at https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Compiling ?

Thanks,
