Build JupyterHub-ready images#

JupyterHub allows multiple users to collaborate on a shared Jupyter server. repo2docker can build Docker images that can be shared within a JupyterHub deployment. For example, uses JupyterHub and repo2docker to allow anyone to build a Docker image of a git repository online and share an executable version of the repository with a URL to the built image.

To build JupyterHub-ready Docker images with repo2docker, the version of your JupyterHub deployment must be included in the environment.yml or requirements.txt of the git repositories you build.

If your instance of JupyterHub uses DockerSpawner, you will need to set its command to run jupyterhub-singleuser by adding this line in your configuration file:

c.DockerSpawner.cmd = ['jupyterhub-singleuser']
