Question

view the desktop remotely (maybe through a browser)

I am running Docker 1.11.1 in the cloud (using digital ocean). I access it through SSH but I am not familiar particularly with Linux and so I was wondering if I can access it through a desktop interface instead of the command line. I want to run some python scripts inside it. Anyone have any suggestions? I tried to install Teamviewer but it seemed not to work. Is there any way to interact through a desktop?
