How can I add a very necessary docker argument to DO apps?

How can i use the following argument with DO apps docker --shm-size? My program and many others cannot function properly without it because Docker only allocates 64MB in shared memory by default which is very low.

At this time, DigitalOcean App Platform doesn’t support specifying --shm-size or customizing shared memory size directly.

If you are using Docker on a droplet instead, you can try creating a custom build script with a docker-compose.yml file and specifying the necessary options there.

For more information about the App Platform’s limitations, see the DigitalOcean App Platform docs.
