GATB-TOOLS and Docker

This document explains how you can setup and use GATB-Tools within a Docker container.

What are GATB-Tools?

GATB-Tools are softwares built upon the GATB-Core Library.

As of June 2017, this projet includes within a single Docker image :

About this project

It aims at providing you with the material (i.e. a Dockerfile) to build a single Docker image containing all above mentioned GATB-Tools binaries.

It is worth noting that this Dockerfile packages the latest available binary release of each GATB-Tool as it is available in the respective project. In other words, this Dockerfile DOES NOT compile anything.


Of course, you need to have Docker installed on your system.

We also suppose that you are familiar with docker build and docker run commands.

Note: provided Dockerfile was made and tested using Docker version 17 on Mac OSX Yosemite. However, it should work on other releases of Docker and OS (Linux, Windows or OSX).
