Lauching GitHub repo into Binder fails due to script folder >=2GB - Message could be more explicit

Dear all,

I had problem to launch my binder for a GitHub repo.
I try to figure out if it was due to:

  • requirements.txt
  • runtime.txt

After some test, by adding element by element , i realize it was due to the size of one folder >= 2,38 GB
In my case was script folder.

Example repo here:

I didn’t read any thing about the size limitation only about the use of the RAM: RAM as 1GB - 2GB

But the GitHub repo is about 4,31GB

Log maybe could be more explicit

See below

How to get data into your Binder, referenced in this answer to ‘Is there a limit to the Online Jupyter Notebook demo?’, may help you consider your options for dealing with this.


Thank you so much for your quick answer, i go to look at this and consider the postBuild or the access to a dataverse repository.
