List images created by Docker for Mac using Docker Toolbox

From Docker’s documentation, I read both Docker for Mac and the Docker Toolbox can coexist.

So I thought I could use these images created by Docker for Mac, but when I switched to Docker Toolbox, it turned out that I was wrong, because I entered docker images in Docker Quickstart Terminal.app and no image was listed.

  • Artifactory pro server behind an nginx frontend
  • How do I forward my Docker IP to the rest of the network?
  • Docker container cannot access internet, only ping works
  • docker image delete from private registry
  • Python script with multiple rest queries fails when run in a docker container
  • Docker : Cannot connect to the Docker daemon. Is the docker daemon running on this host?
  • Is there a way to achieve this?

  • Docker-compose: no access to Wordpress files
  • Postgres container crashes with `database files are incompatible with server` after container's image has been updated to the latest one
  • override default docker run from host with options/arguments
  • ERROR: repository x not found: does not exist or no pull access
  • Kubernetes: Multiple Services/Replication Controllers
  • Docker - adding DNS by editing “docker” file

    Docker-for-Mac sets up a small virtual machine via hyperkit, which is a xhyve-based virtualization solution.

    The quickstart terminal also sets up a small virtual machine, but it uses the docker-machine tool to create a virtualbox VM.

    Both of these approaches are valid approaches to get a running Docker-in-a-vm-on-your-mac, but they are different VMs.

    Similarly, if I have a regular linux machine at my desk, and I pull an image, you won’t see that image in the docker daemon on the linux machine at your desk.

    Both tools can coexist, but they don’t share data.

    You can’t share images directly between Docker for Mac and Docker Toolbox. They are two different and independent systems.

    In Docker for Mac, the docker daemon is running inside an Alpine linux vm controlled by a small hypervisor (Xhyve). In Docker Toolbox, the docker daemon runs inside a boot2docker vm controlled by VirtualBox.

    You can’t directly communicate between the two, but you can save the image using docker save (documentation here):

    docker save image_from_dockertoolbox > toolbox.tar
    

    and then use docker load (documentation) to load it after changing to docker4mac:

    docker load < toolbox.tar.gz  
    
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
