I'm trying @martinandert suggestion but after successfully build the image I end up with the following error when I try to run it:

docker: Error response from daemon: OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:348: starting container process caused "exec: \"/bin/sh\": stat /bin/sh: no such file or directory": unknown.

Is there anyone encountering the same problem? 🤔
Btw I'm using the Docker Community Edition Version 2.0.0.0-beta1-mac75 (27117), Channel: edge

Had issues with scratch using 0.31.0. I think its because it cant find uname:

Unhandled exception: execvp (/bin/sh "-c" "uname \"${@}\"" "--"): No such file or directory: No such file or directory (Errno)

  from ???

However, changing it alpine worked.

FROM crystallang/crystal:latest

ADD . /src
WORKDIR /src
RUN shards build --production
RUN ldd bin/miniserver | tr -s '[:blank:]' '\n' | grep '^/' | \
    xargs -I % sh -c 'mkdir -p $(dirname deps%); cp % deps%;'

FROM alpine
COPY --from=0 /src/deps /
COPY --from=0 /src/bin/miniserver /miniserver

ENTRYPOINT ["/miniserver"]
