This image allows you to run MiKTeX on any computer that supports Docker.
Provided that your main input file is located in the current working directory,
you can run
pdflatex as follows:
docker run -ti -v miktex:/var/lib/miktex -v `pwd`:/miktex/work -e MIKTEX_UID=`id -u` miktex/miktex:essential \
- 23.10-essential, essential (essential variant)
- 23.10-basic, basic (basic variant)
The essential variant contains a bare MiKTeX system.
The basic variant contains the basic package set.
MiKTeX is configured to install missing package files in the container directory
It is recommended that you mount this directory to a named Docker volume. This ensures that data (such as downloaded packages) survives the container.
The host directory containing the input files must be mounted to the container
All commands inside the container are executed as user
miktex and uid 1000.
It is possible to change the uid by setting the container environment variable
To execute as the current user, you would pass option
-e MIKTEX_UID=$(id -u)
to the Docker
