Install and Run
$ docker pull ncareol/aspen $ xhost + # On macOS and Linux only $ docker run -it --rm -e DISPLAY=<your ip>:0 \ -v home_aspen:/home/aspen -v "<data path>:/data" \ ncareol/aspen
<your ip>: the IP of your machine (X11 client).
home_aspen: creates a docker named volume which holds the aspen home directory for the container. Configuration and the sounding database will be saved here, and will persist between system reboots.
<data path>: absolute path to a directory tree on the host system, containing sounding data files. This will be accessible from the Aspen app as Computer:/data.
Sample sounding files and the geospatial database may be located, in the Aspen file access popups, under Computer:/var/lib/aspen/AspenV3.3-xxxxxxxx/
