Using workshop docker images locally

Workshops with preinstalled dependencies can be run locally using Docker.

Advanced: Use -v $(pwd):/home/rstudio argument to map your local directory to the container. Use -e DISABLE_AUTH=true, if you want passwordless login to RStudio. On Windows, you may need to provide your localhost IP address like - find it using docker-machine ip default in Docker’s terminal.


docker pull waldronlab/publicdataresources:latest
docker run -e PASSWORD=bioconductor -p 8787:8787 -d --rm waldronlab/publicdataresources
# Open http://localhost:8787 and login using rstudio/bioconductor credentials
# Run browseVignettes(package = "PublicDataResources")
# Open http://localhost:8787/help/library/PublicDataResources/doc/PublicDataResources.html
docker ps -a # List all running containers
docker stop <CONTAINER ID> # or, <NAMES> - Stop a container
