How to build a basic Singularity container


  • create a writable container (called a sandbox)

  • shell into the container with the --writable option and tinker with it interactively

  • record changes that we like in our definition file

  • rebuild the container from the definition file if we break it

  • rinse and repeat until we are happy with the result

  • rebuild the container from the final definition file as a read-only singularity image format (SIF) image for use in production
