I am trying to build a custom container on
BinderHub using a
Dockerfile. I know that this is not a recommended way of building a
binder repository, but I would still like to know a workaround. In fact I already have the prebuilt docker image needed for the build. So I begin with something as simple as
FROM ceciledc/fenics_mixed_dimensional:latest ENV HOME=/tmp
Of course, this builds fine right off the bat, but the resulting container is rendered unusable.
Any ideas on how to proceed after this? I have tried the instructions given here in order to consume the default
NB_UID/NB_USER arguments and create a more sophisticated repo, but haven’t been successful yet.
I am a relatively new user to repo2docker and am still in the process of fully understanding it, but any pointers to possible solutions would be appreciated.
