Run your ALICE environment from a container easily

Project description


Run your ALICE environment from a container. Install Docker, then:

bash <(curl -fsSL

You may need to close and reopen your terminal as advised. Run alidock now:


You are instantly dropped in a shell with a consistent ALICE environment from a Docker container. From there you can directly run, for example:

aliBuild init O2@dev --defaults o2
aliBuild build O2 --defaults o2

and it will download the precompiled binaries for you.

Your home directory in the container, called /home/alidock, is available from outside the container in ~/alidock. This means you can use your favourite text editor or IDE from your laptop, no need to edit from inside the container.
