Docker image to run JupyterLab Notebook locally
Running JupyterLab Notebook locally can be painful due to conflicts with base system Python and I don't particully like conda or venv.
I'm leveraging Docker to run a notebook locally with a bonus that allow me to have several different versions and try optimial instalations.
The companion script
[notebook.bashrc](notebook.bashrc) tries to load locally a image matching the file version and if it can't find it will build it automatically. Once the image is ready the notebook will start and listen on port 8888.
# Add this to your ~/.bashrc [ -f ~/usr/local/jupyterlab-notebook/notebook.bashrc ] && source ~/usr/local/jupyterlab-notebook/notebook.bashrc
After loading the companion script, you can open the notebook watching to the current folder:
cd ~/Notebooks notebook
There is a fairly amount of packages installed on this image, but you can always customize it. Edit
requirements.txt and rebuild.
If you like the idea but doesn't want to build it locally, you can always pull from DockerHub
