Virtual Environments for Python, using Docker¶
DockEnv makes it easy to safely run untrusted python code and packages.
The nature of modern software development means even the simplest of projects can depend on a complex web of package dependencies. The opacity of this web makes it hard to know what code you should trust to run on your machine, and what you shouldn’t. Outdated packages can create security holes, and malicious users can inject their own code into the dependency chain.
But you might not have the time, or expertise, to fully audit a dependency chain, particularly if just trying out new apps, or using a project to solve a one-time problem. This is where DockEnv can help.
DockEnv uses Docker to create a virtual environment image that you can pre-load with one or mode packages into. Then, you can execute scripts inside this environment, passing in and out only text, whilst all code (including the package installation) is only executed inside the container.
# Step 1: Create a new virtual enviroment $> dockenv new my_env --package djrongo==0.0.1 # Step 2: Run the script $> dockenv run my_env djrongo_example.py --run-demo this is output from djrongo_example.py
