OpenDX is a uniquely powerful, full-featured software package for the visualization of scientific, engineering and analytical data: Its open system design is built on familiar standard interface environments. And its sophisticated data model provides users with great flexibility in creating visualizations.
Download the latest epel-release rpm from
sudo yum install epel-release sudo yum install dx # OR cd $HOME/Downloads # RHEL/CentOS 6 64-Bit ## wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-6.noarch.rpm sudo rpm -Uvh epel-release-6*.rpm sudo yum install dx
If you know how to run Docker, see the devel directory:
Here is a screencast for how it is working: youtu.be/vbJP21lebLE
You can get dx working on a mac as easy as:
open -a XQuartz xhost + `ipconfig getifaddr en1` docker run -ti --rm -e DISPLAY=$(ipconfig getifaddr en1):0 -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix -v $PWD:/home/developer/work --name ubuntu_dx opendx
Consider to add these to your .bash_profile
alias dxdocker='open -a /Applications/Docker.app/Contents/MacOS/Docker' alias dxx='open -a XQuartz; xhost + `ipconfig getifaddr en1`' alias dx='docker run -ti --rm -e DISPLAY=$(ipconfig getifaddr en1):0 -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix -v $PWD:/home/developer/work --name ubuntu_dx opendx' alias dxbash='docker exec -it ubuntu_dx bash'

After installing, in your home .bash_profile, add this
# Use OpenDX/usr/local/bin alias dx='open -a /Applications/OpenDX-4.4.4/OpenDX.app'
Then you can open dx files from terminal
NOTE: A test try Oct. 2017 did not work on a macOS Sierra.
Instead installing Docker for mac, and running Dockerfile worked instead.
