This repository contains Dockerfiles for different Docker containers of interest to R users.
To get started right away, ensure you have Docker installed and start a container with
docker run --rm -ti rocker/r-base (see here for the
docker run command options). In this case we are starting the
r-base container (the base package to build from) in an interactive mode, see below for details of the other containers currently available. To get started on the
rstudio container or its derivative containers (eg.
ropensci) you need to open a port, see the instructions in the wiki. The wiki also contains further instructions and information on the project, including how to extend these images and contribute to development.
This is work in progress; please read our instructions to contributors and talk to @eddelbuettel and @cboettig about how to get involved.

The rocker project also hosts Docker images illustrating particular use cases. More information
about these can be found in their respective respositories on rocker-org
