Using Docker on MacOS

Docker desktop is bad choice. Use Colima (containers in Lima) instead.

Install Colima

brew install colima

If you observe “Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?” set DOCKER_HOST:

export DOCKER_HOST=unix://$HOME/.colima/docker.sock

Install Docker and Docker Compose
