Docker is available for Linux, MacOS, and Windows.

Before installing Docker onto your system, make sure the following prerequisites have been met: macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) is the recommended minimum version for Docker for Mac, although macOS 10.10.3 (Yosemite) or later will also meet the requirements.

FileBot Downloads Installer packages for Windows. MacOS portable app bundle. Docker images are available on Docker Hub. Docker Desktop is an application for MacOS and Windows machines for the building and sharing of containerized applications and microservices. Docker Desktop delivers the speed, choice and security you need for designing and delivering containerized applications on your desktop.


Docker for Mac is best installed with Homebrew and Homebrew Cask. For other ways to install on MacOS, see Install Docker for Mac in Docker's docs.

💡 Tip: Avoid Docker Toolbox and boot2docker. These are older packages that have been ceded by Docker for Mac.

Arch Linux

Docker is available in Arch Linux's repositories. Also see Docker in ArchWiki.

Ubuntu is available from the Ubuntu repositories (as of Xenial).

💡 Tip: If the package isn't available for you, see Get Docker CE for Ubuntu for an alternative.



Install Windows Subsystem for Linux and choose Ubuntu as your guest OS. Install Docker as you normally would on Ubuntu (see above). After that, see these instructions for info on how to get it running.

💡 Tip: Avoid Docker for Windows. While it works in most cases, you'll still face NTFS limitations without WSL (eg, lack of symlinks, which is needed for Yarn/npm to work).


Other OS's
