Short Description
[0.17.1] Superset for MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and Amazon Redshift on Python3
Full Description


Docker image for AirBnB's Superset.

Formerly Caravel


Run the superset demo by entering this command into your console:

git clone
cd superset
docker-compose up -d redis mysql
# Wait for MySQL to come online...
docker-compose up -d superset
# Wait for Superset to come online...
docker-compose exec superset demo

You will be prompted to set up an admin user.

When finished navigate to http://localhost:8088/ to see the demo.

Log in with the credentials you just created.


This repo is tagged in parallel with superset. Pulling amancevice/superset:0.13.1 will fetch the image of this repository running superset version 0.13.1. It is possible that the latest tag includes new features/support libraries but will usually be in sync with the latest semantic version.


As of 0.15.0 I have removed the default file that is laid down. Users who wish to override the defaults should review the configuration provided by AirBnB, determine which values to override, and mount this file to /home/superset/

A very simple example is available for reference at ./ (which is used by the demo docker-compose file).

Database Initialization

After starting the Superset server, initialize the database with an admin user and Superset tables using the superset-init helper script:

docker run --detach --name superset [options] amancevice/superset
docker exec -it superset superset-init


Upgrading to a newer version of superset can be accomplished by re-pulling amancevice/supersetat a specified superset version or latest (see above for more on this). Remove the old container and re-deploy, making sure to use the correct environmental configuration. Finally, ensure the superset database is migrated up to the head:

# Pull desired version
docker pull amancevice/superset

# Remove the current container
docker rm -f superset-old

# Deploy a new container ...
docker run --detach --name superset-new [options] amancevice/superset

# Upgrade the DB
docker exec superset-new superset db upgrade

Importing a table from postgres - I can't amend the List Table Column page, I check desired boxes, go back to details and save, but lose changes.

Am I missing something obvious?

@zfbp ldap isn't installed in this image by default. You'll have to install it yourself for now:

FROM amancevice/superset:0.13.2
RUN pip3 install ldap3
