Run your ALICE environment from a container easily
Run your ALICE environment from a container. Install Docker, then:
bash <(curl -fsSL https://bit.ly/alidock-installer)
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
~/alidock. This means you can use your favourite text editor or IDE from your laptop,
no need to edit from inside the container.
