Using Composer inside Docker on Mac In 2 Minutes (without brew)

I’m using Docker on Mac since 3 years and same as you, I was using it only to run project. It was always simple running “docker-compose up -d”.

It looked exactly like Vagrant or simple image runned on VirtualBox. There were benefits of using Docker on production, Docker on Linux environment. On MacOs, however, it gave me more problems than solutions.

How to install Docker on Mac OS using brew?

What is Docker?

Docker is the next step on long IT containerization way. What does it mean? Years ago, you could run each application/process in particular container, that application couldn’t go outside the container which it was run. It was very safe but difficult to manage and not sharable. So you couldn’t easy share your container to other machine or to other developers to reuse for example by open source community.
