Source and some binaries are on github :

See the README file found here for build and run instructions.


EsbRootView exists under gbarrand/esbrootview on:

As it is a X11 app, you have to setup the DISPLAY. On a Mac with XQuartz:

     macOS> docker login  # to login on
     macOS> docker pull gbarrand/esbrootview:<version>
     macOS> ifconfig  # to get your IP address.
        sh> DISPLAY=<IP>:0;export DISPLAY
     ( csh> setenv DISPLAY <IP>:0 )
     macOS> xhost + <IP>
     macOS> docker run -e DISPLAY=${DISPLAY} -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix:rw gbarrand/esbrootview:<version>

If producing a out.jpg or out.png with the export menu item, you can get it on your host with:

     macOS> docker ps  # to get the container id.
     macOS> docker cp <container id>:/root/Documents/EsbRootView/out.jpg .

On a Windows-10 with the X11/Xming server, from XLaunch, start Xming with "on" in the "No Access Control" box, or from the DOS prompt :

    DOS> Xming :0 -multiwindow -clipboard -ac
 (you may have to kill Xming from "Task manager"), and :
    DOS> docker login
    DOS> docker pull gbarrand/esbrootview:<version>
    DOS> docker run -e DISPLAY= gbarrand/esbrootview:<version>

app as a web server

EsbRootView can be built to be a web server by using ourex/tntnet. (It is not available on Windows-10). To build, as said in the README :

     UNIX> build -tntnet -bin_tntnet

You can deploy, for example on some OpenStack virtual machine having no web server running, with :

     UNIX> sudo nohup ./bin_tntnet/distrib/EsbRootView/<version>/bin/EsbRootView -host=<IP> -port=80 &

Then someone can see the display within a web browser having WebGL by opening a page with :

     http://<IP of the host>

It works for us with Safari, Chrome, Firefox running on macOS.
