[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi]@ryanchristo at the moment we're not using docker for development, only for running tests and deployment. For development I'm using the vagrant box for the api, and running gulp for the client.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] You can also just use a php dev server for the API. ie. run php -S localhost:8000 -t httpdocs httpdocs/index.php
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] It has a few limitations, but the majority of things work just fine like that
