Versions tested on

We have tested the Docker image and build on macOS High Sierra (on MacBook Pro with 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 and 16 GB RAM) and Ubuntu Xenial 16.04.3 LTS.

Installation Guide

Once Docker is installed on your machine, pull the srivathsapv/bloby image from Docker Hub here as follows:

docker pull srivathsapv/bloby

It will typically take around 3 minutes to pull the entire Docker image.


Instructions to run on data

Create a .docker-env file and add your BOSS_TOKEN value as follows. This is needed to upload the detected centroids to BOSS for visualization


In order to use the functionality built into this Docker image, you need to run the Docker image:

docker run -p 3000:3000 --env-file .docker-env srivathsapv/bloby

This should print a link to the terminal console that looks like this:

Go to this link in your browser by copying and pasting it.

Next, click on Package Usage.ipynb. Once the notebook opens, you can run all cells by clicking on 'Cell' and then 'Run All'.

The expected run time for this demo is < 10 seconds.

Expected Output

You should see a message showing the successful upload to BOSS with a URL!

Congrats, you've succesfully run bloby!
