DockerHub

epicompare is now available via DockerHub as a containerised environment with Rstudio and all necessary dependencies pre-installed.

Installation

Method 1: via Docker

First, install Docker if you have not already.

Create an image of the Docker container in command line:

docker pull neurogenomicslab/epicompare

Once the image has been created, you can launch it with:

docker run \
  -d \
  -e ROOT=true \
  -e PASSWORD="<your_password>" \
  -v ~/Desktop:/Desktop \
  -v /Volumes:/Volumes \
  -p 8787:8787 \
  neurogenomicslab/epicompare

NOTES

  • Make sure to replace <your_password> above with whatever you want your password to be.
  • Change the paths supplied to the -v flags for your particular use case.
  • The -d ensures the container will run in “detached” mode, which means it will persist even after you’ve closed your command line session.
  • The username will be “rstudio” by default.
  • Optionally, you can also install the Docker Desktop to easily manage your containers.

Method 2: via Singularity

If you are using a system that does not allow Docker (as is the case for many institutional computing clusters), you can instead install Docker images via Singularity.

singularity pull docker://neurogenomicslab/epicompare

Usage

Finally, launch the containerised Rstudio by entering the following URL in any web browser: http://localhost:8787/

Login using the credentials set during the Installation steps.
