[en] We present a collection of Docker images for running FEniCS in Linux containers. With one command, a user can launch a lightweight container that provides a consistent environment for using or developing FEniCS. Once the initial image has been fetched, 'FEniCS terminals' can be launched near-instantly. We show through a range of tests that performance within a container is to equal to that on the host system. Moreover, MPI programs can be run from inside the container, and host CPU vectorisation features can be exploited. In practice, container versions of FEniCS will be faster than user installations as the container images can be carefully tuned for performance. Live demonstrations of user and developer container use will be presented. The containers are built and hosted on Docker Hub
