This is a base image, used for our GitLab CI as a shared runner. All packages
are included to build pdf-files with our paper-build repository.
Build local image
$ docker build -t hhucn-latex .
This takes a while, since all packages from the Dockerfile need to be installed.
Start local instance of the container
Connect to local container with a bash:
$ docker run -it hhucn-latex bash
Copy files to the running container
Assuming you connected to the container you previously built and started a bash
$ docker run -it hhucn-latex bash root@ac9e1dfa2eecy:/#
In this example, the host is
ac9e1dfa2eec. We can now copy files from our host
into this container. For example we want to copy the file
foo.md into our
container. Then we have to call from our host system:
$ docker cp foo.md ac9e1dfa2eec:/foo.md
Inside the container, we can see the file:
root@ac9e1dfa2eecy:/ ls -l foo.md -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4 Jun 21 13:04 foo.md
