I am currently working on a
devcontainer setup using a compose file. I am wondering why the examples shown in the docs use the
:cached suffix instead of
I was thinking that with such a
devcontainer, one is basically inside the container when making changes to the volume. So delegated would be more reasonable.
Here is some more explanation about the difference of the two: How do I add :cached or :delegated into a docker-compose.yml volumes list?
- Use cached: when the host performs changes, the container is in read only mode.
- Use delegated: when docker container performs changes, host is in read only mode.
- Use default: When both container and host actively and continuously perform changes on data.
