Create Ubuntu and Python Docker Containers
Although you can pull a Ubuntu image from the Docker Hub using the ” docker pull ubuntu”, it is more flexible to create your Ubuntu as you can specify the Ubuntu version and install any software you want such as Python 3 on your Mac or Window using Docker. In the following example, we will show how to install Ubuntu 20.04 with Python 3 using Docker.
First, create a folder, say called it first.
Create a Dockerfile and add the following lines
FROM ubuntu:20.04 RUN apt-get -y update && apt-get install -y python3
Build a docker image on the cmd line as follows
docker build first -t first
A docker image named first is then created. You can start the docker container as follows:
docker run -it first
