I didn't want to install java, latex etc. So I ran an Ubuntu container and used the PPA to install sage. Everything seems to work fine except when I run a command such as parametric_plot3d I don't see jmol viewer.
In hindsight, it was probably silly to expect this. But I'm not happy with SageMathOnline or SageMathCell (interacting with the plots is not 'smooth'). So is there a way to have an isolated environment for sage?Sun, 25 Sep 2016 09:10:40 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/34934/viewing-3d-plots-in-docker/Answer by paulmasson for <p>Is there a way I can view 3d plots/other graphics while running sage in a docker container?</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/34934/viewing-3d-plots-in-docker/?answer=34992#post-id-34992As far as I know this is not currently possible, but I have just submitted code for basic Three.js support at the command line with rendering in a browser running JavaScript:
https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/12402.
If you have an interest in seeing that become part of SageMath, please encourage developers to take a look at the ticket. Thanks!Thu, 29 Sep 2016 19:16:41 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/34934/viewing-3d-plots-in-docker/?answer=34992#post-id-34992
