Docker Image for Apache Zeppelin Releases


This document contains instructions about making docker containers for Zeppelin. It mainly provides guidance into how to create, publish and run docker images for zeppelin releases.

Quick Start

Installing Docker

You need to install docker on your machine.

Running docker image for Zeppelin distribution

docker run -p 8080:8080 -e ZEPPELIN_IN_DOCKER=true --rm --name zeppelin apache/zeppelin-server:<release-version>

Notice, please specify environment variable ZEPPELIN_IN_DOCKER when starting zeppelin in docker, otherwise you can not see the interpreter log.

  • Zeppelin will run at http://localhost:8080.

If you want to specify logs and notebook dir,

docker run -p 8080:8080 --rm \
-v $PWD/logs:/logs \
-v $PWD/notebook:/notebook \
-e ZEPPELIN_LOG_DIR='/logs' \
-e ZEPPELIN_NOTEBOOK_DIR='/notebook' \
--name zeppelin apache/zeppelin-server:<release-version> # e.g '0.9.0'

Building dockerfile locally

cd scripts/docker/zeppelin/bin

docker build -t my-zeppelin:my-tag ./

Build docker image for Zeppelin server & interpreters

Starting from 0.9, Zeppelin support to run in k8s or docker. So we add the capability to build docker images for Zeppelin server & interpreter. Recommendation: Edit the Docker files yourself to adapt them to your needs and reduce the image size.

At first your need to build a zeppelin-distribution docker image. bash cd $ZEPPELIN_HOME docker build -t zeppelin-distribution .

Build docker image for zeppelin server. bash cd $ZEPPELIN_HOME/scripts/docker/zeppelin-server docker build -t zeppelin-server .

Build base docker image for zeppelin interpreter. bash cd $ZEPPELIN_HOME/scripts/docker/zeppelin-interpreter docker build -t zeppelin-interpreter-base .
