I have setup a basic docker-compose.yml with the official Elasticsearch and Kibana images.
I can easily run a PUT command to setup an index template and it works.
So then my last step is to automate the PUT command into the creation of my container.
I don't know if what I am trying is possible or advisable. I do not feel like adding a manual step to setup a development environment is a good idea.
Thank you for your time.
