quick launch


  1. Use either CodeSpaces or another clean Dev Environment that you trust to clone the repository

note: The larger datascience images (e.g., geospatial, earthlab, or ML types with CUDA, Tensorflow or Pytorch) are all >5GB in size when compressed and can be over 30GB when uncompressed. Make sure to use a VM with enough RAM and Disk storage (suggest >8 cores, >16 GB RAM, >60 GB disk).

  1. Clone this repository
git clone
  1. Determine what version the current latest image is running, and prepare a new folder with that version of JupyterHub if it is no longer latest.

Visit the Jupyter Docker Stacks pages

  1. Rename the previous latest as its point release version number

  2. Create a copy of the directory latest and make any updates required for broken package dependencies

  3. Build the new image using the latest tag name

  4. Test the new image by running it with a suitable sample notebook

  5. Check the GitHub Action to make sure it is using the latest featured build successfully

  6. Push changes back to GitHub repository main branch and wait until GitHub Action completes.

Running Docker locally or on a Virtual Machine

To run the JupyterLab, you must first pull from DockerHub, or activate a CyVerse Account and launch in the Discovery Environment VICE.

The container for running JupyterLab is hosted on DockerHub and can be started locally:

docker pull
docker run -it --rm -p 8888:8888

Run Docker container in CyVerse VICE

Unless you plan on making changes to this container, you should just use the existing launch button above.

You can build a new Docker container with additional dependencies from this Docker Hub image by using the FROM cyversevice/jupyterlab-scipy:latest at the beginning of your own Dockerfile.

Developer notes

To test the container locally:

docker run -it --rm -p 8888:8888 -e REDIRECT_URL=http://localhost:8888

To build your own container with a Dockerfile and additional dependencies, pull the pre-built image from DockerHub:


Follow the instructions in the VICE manual for integrating your own tools and apps.
