Full Description

GAP Docker container

We have a prebuilt Docker image at

If you install Docker, you may run GAP from this container interactively as follows:

$ sudo docker run --rm -i -t gapsystem/gap-container
gap@4e17t888823a:~$ gap
 *********   GAP, Version 4.7.7 of 13-Feb-2015 (free software, GPL)
 *  GAP  *
 *********   Architecture: x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc-default64
 Libs used:  gmp, readline
 Loading the library and packages ...
 Components: trans 1.0, prim 2.1, small* 1.0, id* 1.0
 Packages:   GAPDoc 1.5.1
 Try '?help' for help. See also  '?copyright' and  '?authors'

This GAP Docker container provides only the core GAP system and the GAPDoc package
which is needed by GAP. Inside the container, GAP is installed in /home/gap/inst/gap4r8/.

This container may be used, for example, in automated tests of different configurations
of GAP packages by installing them in the pkg subdirectory. An example of a Travis build
which checks whether this container has been built successfully and then runs some GAP
experiment is provided in

Work in progress is to extend this container to build another one, which will provide as
many GAP packages as possible from the latest GAP release.
