This a quick guide to installing
repo2docker, see our documentation for a full guide.
To install from PyPI:
pip install jupyter-repo2docker
To install from source:
git clone https://github.com/jupyterhub/repo2docker.git cd repo2docker pip install -e .
The core feature of repo2docker is to fetch a git repository (from GitHub or locally), build a container image based on the specifications found in the repository & optionally launch the container that you can use to explore the repository.
Note that Docker needs to be running on your machine for this to work.
After building (it might take a while!), it should output in your terminal something like:
Copy/paste this URL into your browser when you connect for the first time, to login with a token: http://0.0.0.0:36511/?token=f94f8fabb92e22f5bfab116c382b4707fc2cade56ad1ace0
If you copy paste that URL into your browser you will see a Jupyter Notebook with the contents of the repository you had just built!
For more information on how to use
repo2docker, see the
Repo2Docker looks for configuration files in the source repository to
determine how the Docker image should be built. For a list of the configuration
repo2docker can use, see the
complete list of configuration files.
The philosophy of repo2docker is inspired by Heroku Build Packs.
Repo2Docker can be run inside a Docker container if access to the Docker Daemon is provided, for example see BinderHub. Docker images are published to quay.io. The old Docker Hub image is no longer supported.
