(Internal Broad only) How to create docker images using Broad filesystems?
I'm trying to create my first docker, but I'm stymied by the first step "Get and install Docker on your local machine". My local machine is a Windows laptop, but I never use this for any programming -- instead I just use the Windows laptop to get a terminal with which to access Broad linux filesystems. All my computer programs are within the Broad's linux system (where I install software using dotkits, and then run them using the linux operating system).
It does not make sense to me to install Docker on my local PC, since I never use or install needed software (Java, R, Python) or run programs on the PC.
But I can't find any instructions on how to create a docker from the Broad unix filesystems (eg when I'm logged in to a linux login server).
Thanks for any help,
