Jupyter with Docker Compose

This repository contains a simple docker-compose definition for launching the popular Jupyter Data Science Notebook. You can define a password with the script generate_token.py -p S-E-C-R-E-T and generate SSL certificates as described below.

Control the container:

  • docker-compose up mounts the directory and starts the container
  • docker-compose down destroys the container

The compose file: docker-compose.yml

version:  '3'
services:
  datascience-notebook:
      image:    jupyter/datascience-notebook
      volumes:
        - ${LOCAL_WORKING_DIR}:/home/jovyan/work
        - ${LOCAL_DATASETS}:/home/jovyan/work/datasets
        - ${LOCAL_MODULES}:/home/jovyan/work/modules
        - ${LOCAL_SSL_CERTS}:/etc/ssl/notebook
      ports:
        - ${PORT}:8888
      container_name:   jupyter_notebook
      command: "start-notebook.sh \
        --NotebookApp.password=${ACCESS_TOKEN} \
        --NotebookApp.certfile=/etc/ssl/notebook/jupyter.pem"

# Generate an access token like this
#   import IPython as IPython
#   hash = IPython.lib.passwd("S-E-C-R-E-T")
#   print(hash)
# You can use the script generate_token.py
