Full Description

A Docker image for Microsoft R Open

Microsoft R Open, formerly known as Revolution R Open, is an "enhanced R distribution". You can use this Docker container to give it a quick try.

Homepage: https://mran.revolutionanalytics.com/open/

For plain R Docker images see Rocker, which were a great help in creating these images.

MRO focusses on speed and reproducibility. By default, packages are not installed from main CRAN, but from a CRAN repository snapshot. For more information see https://mran.revolutionanalytics.com/documents/rro/reproducibility/. MRO promises better speed by using special multitreaded math libraries, replacing default R's BLAS/LAPACK libraries.

Important: By running this container you accept the MKL license, see file mklLicense.txt. The interactive installation script of the MKL download package was adapted in RevoMath_noninteractive-install.sh to not require any user input.

Run container

docker run --user docker nuest/mro

This downloads the latest build of the image from Docker Hub.

Build image locally and run it

Build the image:

docker build -t mro .

Optionally you can create local tags with

docker build -t mro:v3.2.5 -t mro:latest .

Run the image:

docker run -it --user docker mro

In the container, R is automatically started. You can execute a demo script:

source("demo.R")

Alternatively, you can start regular bash (you can skip the --user docker if root rights are needed in the container):

docker run -it --user docker mro /bin/bash

When you exit R, the container is automatically stopped.

To work with your own data, simply mount a directory on the host computer to the container, see the Docker documentation on volumes.

You can install packages etc. in the R session as usual, though for reproducibility it is strongly recommended to do this only in the Dockerfile.

Publish image on Docker Hub

Then push to GitHub - the automated build should be available shortly after.
