I'm looking for a simple way to delay or "sleep" a container for a given amount of time via docker compose. All the solutions I've read about wait-for-it/dockerize seem overly convoluted with heathchecks, etc. I just want to delay a container a given number of seconds. Is this not possible via docker compose?
