A CentOS 7 based Docker image for OMERO.web.

Also see

Standalone image: omero-web-standalone

The quickest way to obtain a running OMERO.web server is to use the standalone image which uses the WhiteNoise package to avoid the need for Nginx.

To run the Docker image you can set a single OMERO.server to connect to by defining OMEROHOST:

docker run -d --name omero-web \
    -e \
    -p 4080:4080 \

Alternative all configuration options can be set using environment variables, for example:

docker run -d --name omero-web \
    -e CONFIG_omero_web_server__list='[["", 4064, "omero"]]' \
    -e CONFIG_omero_web_debug=true \
    -p 4080:4080 \

Minimal OMERO.web image: omero-web

All OMERO configuration properties can be set be defining environment variables CONFIG_omero_property_name=. Since . is not allowed in a variable name . must be replaced by _, and _ by __.

Additional configuration files for OMERO can be provided by mounting files into /opt/omero/web/config/. Files ending with .omero will be loaded with omero load.

See for more details on configuration.
