I have a large (100gb+) database that I’m trying to run with the official postgres image. I can’t store the data in a docker volume because the ~/Library/Containers/com.docker.docker/Data/com.docker.driver.amd64-linux/Docker.qcow2 file in Docker for Mac has a size limitation of about 60gb. I’m hesitant to mount a host directory as a volume because file access in mounted […]

The install instructions aren’t very informative: Note: If you see a message in the […]
I would love to be able to use docker outside of Vagrant in OSX. Right now this is not possible. What are the specific reasons causing it not to be limited for linux installations only?
In short: How can I set the HTTP/HTTPS proxies for Docker on Mac OS X? In detail: I run Docker (1.12) on Mac OS X behind a proxy. I followed the installation instructions and installed boot2docker.
