Adapt to your needs

This deployment is ready to clone and roll on your own server. Read the blog post first, to be sure you understand the configuration.

Then, if you like, clone this repository and apply (at least) the following changes:

  • In .env, set the variable HOST to the name of the server you intend to host your deployment on.
  • In reverse-proxy/traefik.toml, edit the paths in certFile and keyFile and point them to your own TLS certificates. Possibly edit the volumes section in the reverse-proyx service in docker-compose.yml.
  • In jupyterhub/, edit the "Authenticator" section according to your institution authentication server. If in doubt, read here.

Other changes you may like to make:


Once you are ready, build and launch the application with

docker-compose build
docker-compose up -d
