Test it with DockerΒΆ


Docker [Mer14] is an open-source project that automates the deployment of Linux applications inside software containers.

We provide Docker images to enable to run AutoWIG on various platforms (in particular Windows and MacOS). For the installation of Docker, please refers to its documentation. Then, you can use the statiskit/autowig Docker image to run AutoWIG:

$ docker run -i -t -p 8888:8888 statiskit/autowig

A list of all available images can be found here. The image tagged latest is unstable, it could be preferable to use the one attached with the AutoWIG paper submitted in Journal of Computational Science (tagged v1.0.0) as follows:

$ docker run -i -t -p 8888:8888 statiskit/autowig:v1.0.0

For convenience, examples are presented in Jupyter notebooks. You can therefore proceed – in the container’s terminal – as follows to run examples:

  1. Launch the Jupyter notebook with the following command

    $ jupyter notebook --ip='*' --port=8888 --no-browser
  2. Copy the URL given in the container’s terminal and paste it in your browser. This URL should looks like http://localhost:8888/?token=/[0-9a-fA-F]+/.

  3. Click on the notebooks you want to run (denoted by *.ipynb) and then click on Run All item of the Cell top menu bar.


For some systems as Ubuntu, Docker requires root permissions (see this page for more information).
