The BFH LaTeX Docker image is available for BFH members, only.


After installing, please see here for further instructions.

We provide a Docker image with all required packages and tools pre installed providing you the simplest start, requiring only few configurations. In detail, you will be editing your LaTeX document inside a Docker container which is basically a lightweight virtual machine.

As the image contains an already setup and working LaTeX environment, the section about installing the BFH CI can be skipped.


Docker can package an application and its dependencies in a encapsulated environment (lightweight virtual environment) named also container that can run on any GNU/Linux, Windows, or macOS system. To install Docker on your host, follow the OS-dependent instructions on the official website. The link below will take you there.


For Arch/Manjaro based linux distributions use pacman instead.

# pacman -S docker
