For a while I’ve been thinking about how to “take your binder home”. A site like mybinder.org lets you run stuff but you are limited in terms of CPU/RAM and can’t make your changes persistent.
What about a new tool that you run on your laptop that just uses docker and python (no kubernetes) so that you could take a binder link like https://mybinder.org/v2/gh/binder-examples/r and convert it to http://localhost/v2/gh/binder-examples/r and have it start locally?
We could add an option to the UI to add some persistent storage to your docker container so that you can save your changes.
This is a bit related to BinderHub for HPC
