Prometheus + Grafana + Loki with docker-compose

I'm currently using the combination of Grafana, Prometheus and Loki as logging and monitoring stack and built a docker-compose file for the combination which I'd like to share with you.

I am using the following config on a server with a single user (me) that may be destroyed at any time - if you have higher security or availability requirements, please check additional setup strategies like non-root docker or kubernetes or similar.
