I'm trying to launch OpenRefine in a Docker container via Jupyterhub using the Jupyter docker spawner.

If I launch OpenRefine via the container CMD on port 8888, it seems to start up (Butterfly is launched) but when I am taken to the OpenRefine page proper I get an error:

Problem accessing /user/???/. Reason:

    Couldn't find the specified resource

The ??? user is whatever Jupyterhub user (created from the login using the jupyterhub-firstuseauthenticator) I try to log in with.

This same error appeared here: #258 and in that case seemed to be ascribed to a JAVA_HOME setting issue. I tried explicitly setting ENV JAVA_HOME in my OpenRefine Dockerfile but that doesn't seem to help.

FWIW, my OpenRefine Dockerfile is:

#Builds on
FROM psychemedia/openrefinedemo
CMD openrefine-$RELEASE/refine -i -d /opt/mnt -p 8888

The Jupyterhub setup boradly follows the recipe decribed here — :
#c.JupyterHub.authenticator_class = 'dummyauthenticator.DummyAuthenticator'
c.JupyterHub.authenticator_class = 'firstuseauthenticator.FirstUseAuthenticator'

c.Authenticator.admin_users = { 'admin1' }

# launch with docker
c.JupyterHub.spawner_class = 'dockerspawner.DockerSpawner'

# we need the hub to listen on all ips when it is in a container
c.JupyterHub.hub_ip = ''
# the hostname/ip that should be used to connect to the hub
# this is usually the hub container's name
c.JupyterHub.hub_connect_ip = 'jupyterhub'

# pick a docker image. This should have the same version of jupyterhub
# in it as our Hub.
#c.DockerSpawner.image = 'jupyter/base-notebook'
c.DockerSpawner.image = 'test'

# tell the user containers to connect to our docker network
c.DockerSpawner.network_name = 'jupyterhub'

# delete containers when the stop
c.DockerSpawner.remove = True
FROM jupyterhub/jupyterhub:0.9.6
COPY requirements.txt /tmp/requirements.txt
RUN python3 -m pip install --no-cache -r /tmp/requirements.txt
COPY /srv/jupyterhub/
docker network create jupyterhub

docker pull jupyterhub/jupyterhub:0.9.6
docker pull psychemedia/openrefinedemo

docker build -t hub --file Dockerfile-hub .
docker build -t test --file Dockerfile-refine .

docker run --rm -it -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock --net jupyterhub --name jupyterhub -p8000:8000 hub

Login with anything and a user should be created.

My rationale for trying this is that if it can be made to work, it provides an easy way of setting up a multi-user OpenRefine server. (Note that we could just proxy OpenRefine in a Jupyter notebook container, which does work) but I wanted to see if I could get it working standalone (eg as per this Jupyter discourse thread).

I don't really understand what the Dockerspawner does when it launches a container, eg whether it tries to pass a command or environment vars into the container when it launches it? If it does pass things in, I wonder if they're useful when trying to launch OpenRefine. Or maybe it's trying to mount something?
