Docker Setup

For deploying NLP Server on your instance run the following command.

docker run --pull=always -p 5000:5000 johnsnowlabs/nlp-server:latest

This will check if the latest docker image is available on your local machine and if not it will automatically download and run it.

If you want to keep downloaded models between restarts of the docker image, you can mount a volume.

mkdir /var/cache_pretrained
chown 1000:1000 /var/cache_pretrained
docker run --pull=always -v /var/cache_pretrained:/home/johnsnowlabs/cache_pretrained -p 5000:5000 johnsnowlabs/nlp-server:latest
