Execute React JS in ntfs partition

I do development in mounted hard drive which is different than OS partition, also I like to use that mounted drive within different OS like windows and linux simultaneously. Which allow me portability of my code backup in different system.

Challenge is, I have to use such file system for that mounted drive which can accessible in most of the OS like windows, linux or iOS. And in this case NTFS is the best file system which is really portable. Problem for this FS is, it can’t support executable bit of linux which lead to raise many problem in React development. Like if you put any React project into that mounted drive, you can’t execute that code.

To solve this problem I take Docker as a solution. Simply, I create docker image of React project and execute that image. Here is the simple Dockerfile for React project –

FROM node:18
COPY package.json ./
RUN npm install
RUN npm install -g npm@9.7.2
COPY . ./
CMD ["npm", "start"]

You just need to build this docker image and need to run. You can see docker log for any output for your React project.
