Run your ALICE environment from a container easily

Project description



Run your ALICE environment from a container. Install Docker,


bash <(curl -fsSL

Windows users can install the package with pip instead.

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.
