Integrative Genome Viewer in a docker container
This image was made to run on OSX 10.10 (Yosemite). You can do the following to work properly assuming you already have docker and boot2docker:
- Install Homebrew
- brew doctor (just in case) && brew install docker (if you don't have it install yet)
- brew install caskroom/cask/brew-cask socat
- brew cask install XQuartz
Pull the image:
docker pull thephilross/igv
socat TCP-LISTEN:6000,reuseaddr,fork UNIX-CLIENT:\"$DISPLAY\"
docker run -e DISPLAY=192.168.59.3:0 thephilross/igv
Only issue is that it's super slow...I'm not sure if that's due to IGV or because I'm running a container inside a VM which is being run on OSX. But it's still cool...
