Docker on macOS

You can either use the all in one installer provided by Docker or use this manual where you manage everything via Homebrew.

Install Components

Assuming you have Homebrew up and running, install Colima and the docker cli.

$ brew install colima docker

Start the colima VM. Initially the VM gets downloaded. You can check the status afterwards.

$ colima start
$ colima status

Docker is now ready to use. Check with docker info or docker ps.
