Code Ocean's base images attempt to cover the majority of scientific use cases. If you need more than one language, you can set that up starting from a pre-existing image.

Code Ocean can also support languages that don't have a pre-existing base image. To do so:

  • From Code Ocean's dashboard, click 'New Compute Capsule'
  • For language, select 'Other' (This will initiate a compute capsule with no scientific programming languages pre-installed)
  • Click the 'Environment & Dependencies' icon in the top right of your screen to begin configuring your computational environment.

Code Ocean provides setup instructions for a number of additional languages, as well as examples. For instance:

If you have additional languages that you would like us to support, please reach out through live chat or by emailing support@codeocean.com, and we will be happy to help.
