Mounting volumes between the container and your machine
To access files from your machine within the geant4 container you’ll have to mount them using the
-v external/path:internal/path option.
docker run -v ~/Documents/Data:/Data ghcr.io/autamus/geant4 geant4 /Data/myData.csv
which will mount the
~/Documents/Data directory on your computer to the
/Data directory within the container.
If you’re looking to use this container in an HPC environment we recommend using Singularity-HPC to use the container just as any other module on the cluster. Check out the SHPC geant4 container here.
