i'm considering putting together a Dockerfile that preconfigures jupyter notebook, Spark in local mode, and both Python and Scala kernels to work with it. i've seen a few people ask for this in this channel and elsewhere.
if i do it, it would be great to have it up on docker hub under jupyter/notebook-with-spark or something. but i don't see a generic place in the jupyter/* github repos to contribute such dockerfiles.
does it makes sense to open up a new github.com/jupyter/dockerfiles or jupyter/containers or ... where such things could live for dockerhub to pull and automatically build?
@minrk the title threw me off that it was for try.jupyter.org and tmpnb.org only. but if you're open to having that be a general purpose repo for dockerfiles that package jupyter+extras for people to quickly pull down from dockerhub to try out, i'm fine with that.
i'm envisioning notebook+spark, notebook+scipy-stack, notebook+r-stack, ... as nice offerings for folks to just "docker run jupyter/notebook-<some stack>" to get working and/or try things out
given how docker hub works and can automatically rebuild images on github webhooks and other image rebuilds, i'm hoping that if there's a repo for dockerfiles like these to live, they can autobuild on change and show up on docker hub as jupyter/* as prepackaged stacks.
i've got a couple approaches in progress. 1.plugging the spark stuff into the existing try.jupyter image. 2. re-orging the repo a bit so that it can host dockerfiles for images that folks can pull and run elsewhere, not just try.jupyter.
i'll open an issue and submit PRs so we can carry on the discussion there when there's something to point at
