# Install the code¶

## Install via Docker¶

BigDFT may be installed via Docker, see instructions here.

Todo

insert some basic information about Docker

# Run the code¶

We recommend running BigDFT using a jupyter notebook. Various features have been implemented in PyBigDFT for the straightforward pre- and post-processing of calculations, as demonstrated in these tutorials: pybigdft_tutorials, with further examples available on github.

Todo

add some brief text and a link to explain what a jupyter-notebook is; tips for using notebooks remotely (link to script); how to run without using a notebook, i.e. the key ingredients of a calculation and where to find variables - should be at a very basic level.

# Frequently encountered problems¶
