User Environments

User environments are built as immutable Docker images. The Docker images bundle the dependencies, extensions, and predefined notebooks that should be available to all users.

Plasma relies on the tljh-repo2docker plugin to manage environments. The tljh-repo2docker uses jupyter-repo2docker to build the Docker images.

Environments can be managed by admin users by clicking on Environments in the navigation bar:

Manage the list of environments


The user must be an admin to be able to access and manage the list of environments.

The page will show the list of environments currently available:

List of built environments

After a fresh install, this list will be empty.
