Interactive Build

How to contribute a new container.

1) Open an issue to get access to the interactive container build system

  • describe which container you would like to add
  • wait for a reply on your issue that your account has been setup

2) Access the container build system

  • authenticate with your github account
  • select a CPU session or a GPU session (if your container requires a GPU)
  • open a Neurodesktop session

3) Run the interactive build process

  • open a Terminal session
  • run:
cd ~
git clone
cd neurocontainers/interactive_builder/
git pull
  • Follow the instructions of the interactive build tool. After a couple of seconds where the base image gets updated you should see a “root@neurodesk-builder:~$>” shell. Now run the commands to get your tool to work.
  • Once the tool works, hit CTRL-D or type “exit”
  • Then answer more questions in the build tool

4) Submit the generated and file as attachments to your issue

  • once completed, download the and file and submit them as attachments to your github issue
