The ROOT Docker container (alpha version)

(3 August 2017)

Do you like Docker? Would you like to use ROOT? We provide an alpha version of the ROOT Docker container!

We traditionally offer several ways of using ROOT: source distributions for the users to compile on their systems, binary distributions for most popular platforms, central installations on CVMFS or via cloud services such as SWAN We felt we needed an additional step to make ROOT more usable: this is the reason why we provide an alpha version of ROOT as a Docker container.
