Using repo2docker


  1. Docker to build & run the repositories. The community edition is recommended.
  2. Python 3.6+.

Supported on Linux and macOS. See documentation note about Windows support.


This a quick guide to installing repo2docker, see our documentation for a full guide.

To install from PyPI:

pip install jupyter-repo2docker

To install from source:

git clone https://github.com/jupyterhub/repo2docker.git
cd repo2docker
pip install -e .


The core feature of repo2docker is to fetch a git repository (from GitHub or locally), build a container image based on the specifications found in the repository & optionally launch the container that you can use to explore the repository.

Note that Docker needs to be running on your machine for this to work.


jupyter-repo2docker https://github.com/norvig/pytudes

After building (it might take a while!), it should output in your terminal something like:

    Copy/paste this URL into your browser when you connect for the first time,
    to login with a token:

If you copy paste that URL into your browser you will see a Jupyter Notebook with the contents of the repository you had just built!

For more information on how to use repo2docker, see the usage guide.

Repository specifications

Repo2Docker looks for configuration files in the source repository to determine how the Docker image should be built. For a list of the configuration files that repo2docker can use, see the complete list of configuration files.

The philosophy of repo2docker is inspired by Heroku Build Packs.

Docker Image

Repo2Docker can be run inside a Docker container if access to the Docker Daemon is provided, for example see BinderHub. Docker images are published to quay.io. The old Docker Hub image is no longer supported.
