Interactive shell using Docker Compose

0 votes

I was trying to start an interactive shell in a container using docker compose only.

I tried something like this

myapp:
  image: alpine:latest
  entrypoint: /bin/sh

When I start this container using docker using docker compose, it exits immediately.

Can someone help me out?

stdin_open: true
tty: true
