You can download and run this image using the following commands:
docker pull conda/miniconda2 docker run -i -t conda/miniconda2 /bin/bash
Alternatively, you can start a Jupyter Notebook server and interact with Miniconda via your browser:
docker run -i -t -p 8888:8888 conda/miniconda2 /bin/bash -c "/opt/conda/bin/conda install jupyter -y --quiet && mkdir /opt/notebooks && /opt/conda/bin/jupyter notebook --notebook-dir=/opt/notebooks --ip='*' --port=8888 --no-browser"
You can then view the Jupyter Notebook by opening
http://localhost:8888 in your browser, or
http://<DOCKER-MACHINE-IP>:8888 if you are using a Docker Machine VM.
