JupyterPIC Plasma Physics Simulation Setup

Setup for notebooks using the UCLA Plasma Physics Simulation Group's JupyterPIC codes. This is adapted from the dockerfiles for JupyterPIC and jupyter/scipy-notebook.

HS_ROOT, PATH, and PYTHONPATH set via environment variable config.

Install required system packages. The Osiris PIC binary requires versions of the libhdf5 and openmpi libraries which are in the Xenial repo.

echo 'deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial main universe' > \
  /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xenial.list
  
apt-get update > /dev/null
apt-get install -y --no-install-recommends \
  ffmpeg \
  libhdf5-openmpi-10 libopenmpi1.10 \
  libopenmpi-dev=1.10.\* libhdf5-openmpi-dev=1.8.\* \
  openmpi-bin=1.10.\* openmpi-common=1.10.\* \
  gfortran gcc-4.8 \
  git

apt-get clean
rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*

Python packages. Note h5py v2.8 breaks some utility scripts, so we'll hold back.
