My Macbook Pro is running Monterey 12.3.
How can I verify if Docker is installed on my machine? Can this be done using the command line/terminal?
Thanks in advance for the help!
You can always just execute the
docker command in your terminal.
If docker is installed on your machine, it should output all of its commands:
Usage: docker [OPTIONS] COMMAND A self-sufficient runtime for containers Options: --config string Location of client config files (default "/Users/nickmajor/.docker") -c, --context string Name of the context to use to connect to the daemon (overrides DOCKER_HOST env var and default context set with "docker context use") -D, --debug Enable debug mode -H, --host list Daemon socket(s) to connect to -l, --log-level string Set the logging level ("debug"|"info"|"warn"|"error"|"fatal") (default "info") --tls Use TLS; implied by --tlsverify --tlscacert string Trust certs signed only by this CA (default "/Users/nickmajor/.docker/ca.pem") --tlscert string Path to TLS certificate file (default "/Users/nickmajor/.docker/cert.pem") --tlskey string Path to TLS key file (default "/Users/nickmajor/.docker/key.pem") --tlsverify Use TLS and verify the remote -v, --version Print version information and quit . . .
If not, the output will contain an error similar to this:
-bash: docker: command not found
which command should work for this:
docker is installed on you machine, it should output the path to the executive:
Open the Finder file explorer GUI and open the Applications directory.
You should see
Docker in that list of applications installed for your MacOS machine.
Execute this command to get the version of
docker on your machine:
docker is installed to your machine, it should output a version number like this:
Docker version 20.10.14, build a224086
