Saving a Python file in a docker container

Hello there,
I am trying to save an file to my jetson so that when the docker runs, it imports pyserial and when I saved the file (im using vim) and what is happening is that when i closed down the docker container and reopened it, I found out that it did not acctualy save the file.

I realized that it was in a docker container (which only saves on the session it is on and destroys anything after the session closes) and I remembered that the file was IN the docker which meant that it would not save locally to the Jetson.

My question is how would I save that Python file to the Jetson’s local files because that extensions file looks to be an important file and it has to stay in this directory: /usr/local/lib/python3.6/dist-packages/notebook

I was wondering if I could put it into the “data” directory where I have files that are saved localy are because on Jupyter labs, I have the directory “data” as the directory that runs when you run the docker command. here is a picture of the data directory with a Python file I got saved localy with which runs when i load the docker:


Here is the edited Python file with pyserial:

            "python" : True,
        }}, "Install from a Python package"
_base_flags['python'] = _base_flags['py']

_base_aliases = {}

    _log_formatter_cls = LogFormatter

    sys_prefix = Bool(False, config=True, help="Use the sys.prefix as the prefix")
    python = Bool(False, config=True, help="Install from a Python package")

"" 104L, 3322C    

Please tell me if I have to include any more details. Thanks!



You can run the container with the -v flag to mount a folder for saving the files.
