Using BibSpace with Docker

BibSpace has no official docker image on dockerhub (yet), thus you need to build it manually. However, an image with prerequisites exists to ease the process of building. Here are the commands to build BibSpace using docker.

# build BibSpace image
docker-compose build
# run it with docker-compose
docker-compose up -d
# thats it! Point you browser to http://localhost:8083/ to open BibSpace
# you may stop the container with
docker-compose down

Your MySQL data is stored in db_data, whereas preferences and stats in json_data.


Make sure to backup your data (regular backup + copy all json files) before updating.

From Version <=0.5.2 to 0.6.x

Update first to version 0.5.3. Then backup your data to JSON format and make sure that data can be restored correctly. Next, update to version 0.6.0 and restore data from the JSON backup.

From Version 0.5.0 to >0.5.0

Update normally, then execute the following:

mkdir -p json_data
mv *.json json_data/


BibSpace is currently undergoing serious refactoring. Feel free to post an issue if you have a question or want to report a bug.
