Installing Docker on Mac OS
Docker Community Edition (CE) app can be easly installed on Mac OS. This article describes how to downlaod and install Docker on Mac.
There are 2 channels available for installing Docker, first Stable channel, and second is Edge channel.
I would recommend to install Stable channel, which is fully baked and tested. This is the best channel to use if you want a reliable platform to work with.
Download stagble version of Docker for Mac. Get Docker for Mac (Stable)
After downloading Docker.dmg, do following steps to complete the installation process.
Docker.dmg to open the installer, then drag Moby the whale to the Applications folder.
Docker.app in the Applications folder to start Docker. (In the example below, the Applications folder is in “grid” view mode.)
You will be asked to authorize
Docker.app with your system password after you launch it. Privileged access is needed to install networking components and links to the Docker apps.
The whale in the top status bar indicates that Docker is running, and accessible from a terminal.
If you just installed the app, you also get a success message with suggested next steps and a link to this documentation. Click the whale (whale menu) in the status bar to dismiss this popup.
3. Click the whale (whale menu) to get Preferences and other options.
4. Select About Docker to verify that you have the latest version.
