Install node modules before copying over your working code so that node_modules are built (and cached) before you change your service code!
# ...
ADD package.json /tmp/package.json
RUN cd /tmp && npm install && \
mkdir -p /opt/app && cp -a /tmp/node_modules /opt/app/
# ...
WORKDIR /opt/app
ADD . /opt/app

If the package.json file changes then Docker will re-run the npm install sequence... otherwise our modules are cached so we aren't rebuilding them every time we change our apps source code!
