Install Jupyter Notebook Docker

Minimal notebook doesn’t have much inside. If you want to use your jupyter notebook for data science or tensorflow experiments, I recommend switching the minimal jupyter image jupyter/minimal-notebook with jupyter/tensorflow-notebook. First iteration. First we need to know what are we running and whether we can run it locally. Interactive notebook formats. ↔︎ Jupyter notebook. Page layout formats → InDesign ICML. Wiki markup formats. ↔︎ MediaWiki markup ↔︎ DokuWiki markup ← TikiWiki markup ← TWiki markup ← Vimwiki markup → XWiki markup → ZimWiki markup ↔︎ Jira wiki markup. Slide show formats → LaTeX Beamer → Slidy → reveal.js.

Start JupyterLab#

Start a JupyterLab container based on the official Jupyter docker stacks (debian), with sudo privileges to install anything you need (e.g. pip or apt packages)

You can start a container using the JupyterLab template in the Catalog web UI (make sure the Templates checkbox is checked)

When instantiating the template you can provide a few parameters, such as:

  • Password to access the notebook
  • Optionally you can provide a git repository to be automatically cloned in the JupyterLab (if there is a requirements.txt packages will be automatically installed with pip)
  • Docker image to use for the notebook (see below for more details on customizing the docker image)

The DSRI will automatically create a persistent volume to store data you will put in the /home/jovyan/work folder (the folder used by the notebook interface). You can find the persistent volumes in the DSRI web UI, go to the Administrator view > Storage > Persistent Volume Claims.

With this template you can use any image based on the official Jupyter docker stack: https://github.com/jupyter/docker-stacks

Install Anaconda For Windows

  • ghcr.io/maastrichtu-ids/jupyterlab: for data science and knowledge graphs, with Java and SPARQL kernels, and autocomplete for Python
  • jupyter/scipy-notebook: some packages for science are preinstalled
  • jupyter/datascience-notebook: with Julia kernel
  • jupyter/tensorflow-notebook: with tensorflow package pre-installed
  • jupyter/r-notebook: to work with R
  • jupyter/pyspark-notebook: if you want to connect to a Spark cluster
  • jupyter/all-spark-notebook: if you want to run Spark locally in the notebook

You can also build your own image, feel free to use this repository as example to extend a JupyterLab image: https://github.com/MaastrichtU-IDS/jupyterlab

Use git in JupyterLab#

You can always use git from the terminal.

Before pushing back to GitHub or GitLab, you will need to configure you username and email in VSCode terminal:

git config --global user.email [email protected]

You can run this command to ask git to save your password for 15min:

Or store the password in a plain text file:

git config --global credential.helper 'store --file ~/.git-credentials'

We recommend to use SSH instead of HTTPS connection when possible, checkout here how to generate SSH keys and use them with your GitHub account.

You can also enable and use the JupyterLab Git extension to clone and manage your git repositories.

It will prompt you for a username and password if the repository is private.


The Python docker library is among the top 100 Python libraries, with more than 29,160,484 downloads. This article will show you everything you need to get this installed in your Python environment.

How to Install docker on Windows?

  1. Type 'cmd' in the search bar and hit Enter to open the command line.
  2. Type “pip install docker” (without quotes) in the command line and hit Enter again. This installs docker for your default Python installation.
  3. The previous command may not work if you have both Python versions 2 and 3 on your computer. In this case, try 'pip3 install docker' or “python -m pip install docker“.
  4. Wait for the installation to terminate successfully. It is now installed on your Windows machine.

Second, if this leads to an error message, try this command to install docker on your system:

Third, if both do not work, use the following long-form command:

The difference between pip and pip3 is that pip3 is an updated version of pip for Python version 3. Depending on what’s first in the PATH variable, pip will refer to your Python 2 or Python 3 installation—and you cannot know which without checking the environment variables. To resolve this uncertainty, you can use pip3, which will always refer to your default Python 3 installation.

How to Install docker on Linux?
