Hey everyone!

I was wondering if anyone had any experience containerizing Houdini? I was thinking about trying to make a headless Houdini instance do mesh operations from a web API. I've been able to set that by running a flask app and hython, but would like to containerize it to make it more versatile. Any guidance would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I haven't tried it myself yet , but if you check the downloads section, sidefx provides docker files for windows and ubuntu. Looks like a good place to start.

Thanks for pointing me that direction!

I was able to spin up container which seems to have set up Houdini successfully, but unfortunately, as soon as it reaches the hython entry point it crashes being unable to connect to the license server. Looking through the readme, I haven't seem anything that would suggest this is an issue, so I was wondering if anyone knew if there was further documentation anywhere I can read?
