Building the Image

This is only necessary if you are into tweaking the configuration of this project.

With your Docker Machine up and running, and standing in the repo folder, issue

docker build -t tex2pdf .

(This will also tag your image with tex2pdf, which is optional).


To get a tex-file called current.tex to be watched, and compiled to current.pdf on each update, use

docker run -d -v $PWD:/tex-files/ -e FILENAME current tex2pdf
