Mounting volumes between the container and your machine

To access files from your machine within the xz container you’ll have to mount them using the -v external/path:internal/path option.

For example,

docker run -v ~/Documents/Data:/Data ghcr.io/autamus/xz xz /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 xz container here.
