    First install cask and then type in terminal:

    brew cask install docker

    And run docker by Mac bottom menu> launchpad > docker (on first run docker will ask you about password). Thats all 🙂


    Type brew cask uninstall docker . If you install docker in other way than by brew cask then execute below commands:

    sudo rm -Rf /Applications/Docker
    sudo rm -f /usr/local/bin/docker
    sudo rm -f /usr/local/bin/docker-machine
    sudo rm -f /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
    sudo rm -f /usr/local/bin/docker-credential-osxkeychain
    sudo rm -Rf ~/.docker
    sudo rm -Rf $HOME/Library/Containers/com.docker.docker  # here we delete stored images
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
