I downloaded substrate node template from here.
I am following the instructions given in the README and using following command to run the node in docker:
It give the following error:
"Error response from daemon: invalid mount config for type "bind": bind source path does not exist: /host_mnt/Users/syedkamran/polkadot/substrate-node-template/.local"
When I add an empty ".local" file the issue get resolved.
My questions here are:
- What is the ".local" file for?
- Is there any workaround so that the docker/bash commnad without including this ".local" file?
- If this file is necessary than why they do not add this file to the souce code?
