FastAI has docker containers!15 Sep 2020
There’s been some discussion on Twitter about FastAI and Docker containers, so I went looking yesterday in the fastai section of GitHub to see if there were any FastAI-branded (as it were) containers. And yes, there are!
The repository is https://github.com/fastai/docker-containers.
I’m not a Docker superfan, but I do have issues with Python installs, and have had lots of problems getting FastAI setup. So this was exciting to me.
I was also able to build my own Docker image from the cloned repository (I looked at the workflows for hints):
docker build --cache-from fastdotai/fastai-courses:latest --build-arg BUILD=course -t fastai-courses:latestlocal -f fastai-build/Dockerfile fastai-build
For those interested, I also have a Docker tutorial.
