Installs a container


An Installer is meant to install a container on your local machine. There is currently only a single Installer implementation: ZipURLInstaller which downloads a zipped container distribution from a URL and which installs it (i.e. unpacks it) in a specified directory. This is useful if you wish to fully automate a container installation without having to ask the user to manually install a container on their machine.

Of course you don't have to use an Installer if you want to use a container already installed on your machine.
