Gnuplot is a portable command-line driven graphing utility for Linux, OS/2, MS Windows, OSX, VMS, and many other platforms. The source code is copyrighted but freely distributed (i.e., you don’t have to pay for it). It was originally created to allow scientists and students to visualize mathematical functions and data interactively, but has grown to support many non-interactive uses such as web scripting. It is also used as a plotting engine by third-party applications like Octave. Gnuplot has been supported and under active development since 1986

Mounting volumes between the container and your machine
To access files from your machine within the gnuplot container you’ll have to mount them using the
-v external/path:internal/path option.
docker run -v ~/Documents/Data:/Data ghcr.io/autamus/gnuplot gnuplot /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 gnuplot container here.
