Data Science Portal

A portal to RStudio and Jupyter with ability to host Shiny and Dash apps.


This uses shinyproxy under the hood to manage login and etc. Thi assumes you'll be running on a linux system.

Getting started

  1. Make sure docker and docker-compose are installed.
  2. Clone this repo
  3. Build docker images for example apps
docker build -t example_shiny ./shiny
docker build -t example_dash ./dash
docker build -t rstudio ./rstudio
docker build -t jupyter ./jupyter
  1. Create a docker user/group for managing mounted home dirs in rstudio and jupyter. more info
groupadd -g 1011 docker_worker
useradd -s /bin/false -u 1010 -g 1020 docker_worker

Give the users home directories and pass ownership to the docker_worker

# these are my cats - they are data scientists too...
sudo mkdir /home/users/mau
sudo mkdir /home/users/mau
sudo chown -R docker_worker:docker_worker /home/users
  1. Add users and passwords for these users in shinyproxy/application.yml

  2. Run docker-compose up to start the data science portal

docker compose up

Some Notes

To get the terminal working in RStudio: Tools > Global Options > Terminal and uncheck Connect with Websockets

You can’t perform that action at this time.
