Polynote Windows Inofficial (current versions 0.3.11+)

Official Polynote Repository

The script provided allows to run the latest Polynote versions on Windows. It is currently tested on version 0.3.11 (August 19, 2020). If you run the batch script or execute docker-compose build the latest Polynote version is downloaded to create the docker image.


In order to run the batch script you need to have docker and docker-compose installed. docker-compose is included in Docker Desktop. Everything else will be installed and loaded during the build phase.


You can either execute the batch script or issue the commands included manually. The batch script updates polynote and starts the container. If you don't want to update Polynote you can simply type docker-compose up in the directory of docker-compose.yml To stop the container just press ctrl+c in the command line. Note: For the first time executing you must use the batch script or type docker-compose build followed by docker-compose up. You have to do the same whenever you want to update Polynote as in the image creation process the newest version of Polynote is downloaded.


After starting the container you can access Polynote on http://localhost:8192


Adding packages can be done by editing the requirements.txt file. The requirements are added in the build process via pip, so make sure to run docker-compose build or the batch script after adding your requirements to the file.

Notebook Storage

docker-compose mounts a (new) folder named ./notebooks to the container in which the notebooks are stored. Thus, the notebooks are persisted outside the container and can be shared or used after updated Polynote. If you want to change this directory you can edit the path in docker-compose.yml under volumes.


Big parts of the Dockerfile are based on Vilos92's inofficial docker image.
