This is a Dockerfile which aims to create a complete environment for the bismon project. I have written it as an exercise and to make it easy for other users to begin with bismon.

Combine as many RUN statements as possible to reduce the number of layers (and size of the image). Each RUN command makes a new layer.

For example,

RUN apt-get update && apt-get install --yes software-properties-common git gcc-snapshot

After these, you should clean the cache with apt-get autoremove && apt-get autoclean.

For example,

RUN apt-get update && apt-get install --yes software-properties-common git gcc-snapshot && apt-get autoremove && apt-get autoclean

This saves space on the image.

FROM ubuntu:latest is not best practice. Sometimes something works with FROM ubuntu:16.04, but not FROM ubuntu:18.04 (for example, software compatibility).
