Is there a way I can view 3d plots/other graphics while running sage in a docker container?

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?

As 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:

If you have an interest in seeing that become part of SageMath, please encourage developers to take a look at the ticket. Thanks!
