Question about docker-OpenStudio

asked 2017-03-01 14:42:26 -0500

updated 2017-03-01 16:15:47 -0500

I follow the instruction from GitHub to create docker-OpenStudio. Now, OpenStudio can be opened, but when I downloaded the measures from Building Component Library (BCL), the measures could not be loaded in OpenStudio. Could someone give me some advice about how to solve this problem?

This docker container installs OpenStudio, but doesn't install the openstudio-standards Ruby gem which these particular measures need in order to run.

I believe you could modify the dockerfile to install openstudio-standards by adding something like this:

RUN ~/.rbenv/shims/gem install openstudio-standards

I follow your instruction to do the work, and the measures such as "Increase R-value of Insulation for Roofs to a Specific Value" work. However, "Create DOE Prototype Building" and "Create Baseline Building" still do not work. Do you think that there may be some other reasons that could cause this problem? Also, just make sure we do have the new gem installed. I got the following list on new image instance. * LOCAL GEMS * bigdecimal (1.2.0) bundler (1.13.6) io-console (0.4.2) json (1.7.7) minitest (4.3.2) openstudio-standards (0.1.11) psych (2.0.0) rake (0.9.6) rdoc (4.0.0) test-unit (
