Machine (docker) Image for rstan on AWS


#1

Operating System: MacOS
Interface Version: rstan 2.15.1

Output of writeLines(readLines(file.path(Sys.getenv(“HOME”), “.R/Makevars”))): CXXFLAGS=-O3 -mtune=native -march=native -Wno-unused-variable -Wno-unused-function

Output of devtools::session_info("rstan”): +

It would be very helpful to have a ready-to-go installation/machine image that installs rstan and the requisite dependencies in a stable(ish) way to facilitate running rstan on AWS in a good workflow.

Asking as a novice, intimidated by the many options and moving parts in AWS.

There is

http://www.louisaslett.com/RStudio_AMI/

but its RStan tends to be out of date.


#3

Not exactly the same problem, but I actually thought about this a while ago: what about creating a stan-dev organization on Docker hub registry?


#4

There are a few Docker images with Stan on them floating around, which are probably better than what we would do ourselves.


#5

Ben, do you know of any particularly reliable ones?
