Setting up Docker & Docker-Compose

We use docker and docker-compose extensively for development, so it's recommended to set it up in all cases.

How to set up docker/docker-compose on Ubuntu/Debian:

  • Install docker: sudo apt install
  • Install docker-compose: sudo apt install docker-compose
  • Add your user to the docker group so you don't have to use sudo for invoking docker: sudo usermod -aG docker $USER. $USER will automatically be replaced with your username and this will only take effect until the next login/restart.
