Summary0003821: Docker container for FreeCAD development

I tried to make something similar once, but this wasn't successful It would be nice to have a docker container including all the dependencies of freecad, an ide (like kdevelop), git, and the freecad source. Ideally everything should be compiled already (maybe in debug-mode).

So to get started with freecad development all one has to do is:

docker run --name freecad-dev freecad/freecad-development

and this starts the ide.
This would be soooo useful.

TagsNo tags attached.

I'm working on this here, and working on a docker container with the up-to-date dependencies here.

@David_D fantastic. I've elevated your privileges since this is a very important task. Cheers!

I have gotten the docker image to a level that I am satisfied with it as a proof of concept. @Kunda1, would you, or some other interested party be good enough to test the docker image on their machine?

I am aware it is missing the WebView and FEM modules. I will add them later.

Instructions of it's use is available on it's readme.
