Full Description

matlab-support

Docker image with enough dependencies to support a mounted-in Matlab.

This docker image gives you an Ubuntu environment capable of supporting Matlab. For licensing reasons, you must already have your own Matlab installed on the Docker host.

To run Matlab inside the container, you have to provide three things at launch time:

  • Mount in a Matlab installation at /usr/local/MATLAB/from-host.
  • Mount in a folder to receive the Matlab execution log at /var/log/matlab.
  • Spoof the container MAC address to match you own Matlab license file.

Example usages

These expect you to define some local information:

  • MATLAB_ROOT is your matlab installation on the Docker host, perhaps /usr/local/MATLAB/R2016a.
  • MATLAB_LOGS is optional path on the Docker host to receive Matlab logs, perhaps ~/matlab-logs.
  • MATLAB_MAC_ADDRESS is the MAC address associated with your own Matlab License, of the form 00:00:00:00:00:00.

Print Matlab command help:

docker run --rm -v "$MATLAB_ROOT":/usr/local/MATLAB/from-host -v "$MATLAB_LOGS":/var/log/matlab --mac-address="$MATLAB_MAC_ADDRESS" ninjaben/matlab-support

Launch Matlab and print version info:

docker run --rm -v "$MATLAB_ROOT":/usr/local/MATLAB/from-host -v "$MATLAB_LOGS":/var/log/matlab --mac-address="$MATLAB_MAC_ADDRESS" ninjaben/matlab-support -r "version,exit;"

Plot a figure and save it as a png in the logs folder:

docker run --rm -v "$MATLAB_ROOT":/usr/local/MATLAB/from-host -v "$MATLAB_LOGS":/var/log/matlab --mac-address="$MATLAB_MAC_ADDRESS" ninjaben/matlab-support -r "plot(1:10);print('/var/log/matlab/figure.png', '-dpng');exit;"

Thanks

Thanks to Michael Perry at Stanford for info, inspiration, starter code!
