How can I upgrade Docker on a Mac?

I tried just ‘docker-machine upgrade’ and that did some work but I don’t seem to have the latest CLI.

If I do ‘docker version’ I get:

  • docker change cgroup driver to systemd
  • nginx doesn't forward to django app in docker-compose in ubuntu but it all works in docker-machine in Mac
  • Docker failing to see updated fixtures CSV in rspec test directory
  • AWS Configure Bash One Liner
  • syntax error in wercker file when using wercker login command
  • How can I tell if docker has frozen?

    I understand there are some new commands I’m not seeing so I suspect I don’t have the latest software.

  • Query docker embedded dns from host
  • Docker can't write to directory mounted using -v unless it has 777 permissions
  • Docker-compose Kubernetes ENV properties interoperability
  • Docker: execute a program that requires tty
  • Docker containers communication without exposing ports
  • Bluemix: service bound to container does not appear in VCAP_SERVICES

    Since you are on mac, you should install homebrew and from there you can install and upgrade docker with the command brew install docker and brew upgrade. Homebrew is a package manager for mac that makes installation of such applications easy.

    Just try this way:

    $ mkdir ~/docker
    $ curl -Lo  ~/docker/docker-1.13.0-dev
    $ sudo rm -f /usr/local/bin/docker
    $ sudo ln -s ~/docker/docker-1.13.0-dev /usr/local/bin/docker

    you can find all current master branch in this link

    For homebrew usage: I needed to overwrite the last version of docker by using:

    brew link --overwrite docker

    Check with

    docker --version
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
