Use pre-built image

Download image from docker hub. Defaults to latest tag. Docker will normally run as root unless otherwise configured.

$ docker pull bdlss/loris-grok-docker

To run the docker command without sudo, you need to add your user (who must have root privileges) to the docker group. To do this run following command:

$ sudo usermod -aG docker <user_name>

Build from scratch (optional)

Use local Dockerfile to build image. Defaults to latest tag.

$ sudo docker build -t bdlss/loris-grok-docker .

Start the container

$ docker run -d -p 5004:5004 bdlss/loris-grok-docker


Loris bundles with it's own test images. They are stored at /usr/local/share/images/.


Point your browser to http://<Host or Container IP>:5004/01/02/0001.jp2/full/full/0/default.jpg



After starting the container, you can IIIF validate your images from the container command line:

To get to the container command line use:

docker ps
docker exec -it <container ID> /bin/bash

Then for an image served at http://localhost:5004/prefix/image_id the validator can be run with:

$ python /tmp/ -s localhost:5004 -p prefix -i image_id --version=2.0 -v


$ python /tmp/ -s localhost:5004 -p '01/02' -i 0001.jp2 --version=2.0 -v
