Docker is the preferred way to set up your development environment in Mashup Garage projects. With Docker, we're able to achieve parity across different development environments, no matter what their choice of OS's are.
Docker is available for Linux, MacOS, and Windows.
brew cask install docker # Install Docker open /Applications/Docker.app # Start Docker
:bulb: Tip: Avoid Docker Toolbox and boot2docker. These are older packages that have been ceded by Docker for Mac.
Docker is available in Arch Linux's repositories. Also see Docker in ArchWiki.
sudo pacman -Syu docker # Install Docker sudo pacman -Syu docker-compose # Install docker-compose sudo systemctl enable docker # Start Docker on system startup (optional) sudo systemctl start docker # Start Docker now # Add your user to the `docker` group so you can use Docker without sudo sudo usermod -a -G docker $(whoami)
docker.io is available from the Ubuntu repositories (as of Xenial).
# Install Docker sudo apt install docker.io sudo apt install docker-compose # Start it sudo systemctl start docker
docker.io package isn't available for you, see Get Docker CE for Ubuntu for an alternative.
Previously, we recommended to install Docker as you normally would on Ubuntu (see above) and these instructions... Adrian reports that this method makes docker-compose throw errors on his machine.
For other operating systems, see: https://www.docker.com/community-edition#download
If everything works, you should have the following commands available:
$ docker info Containers: 0 Running: 0 Paused: 0 ...
$ docker-compose --version docker-compose version 1.21.2, build unknown
If you get an error like the one below, you might need to start the Docker daemon.
$ docker info Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?
To start the Docker daemon, it probably needs one of these commands
open /Applications/Docker.app # macOS sudo systemctl start docker # Arch, Ubuntu, CentOS
For Arch Linux, Ubuntu and CentOS, this will enable auto-starting of the Docker service:
sudo systemctl enable docker
