Step 1

Go here and do what's written on it.

Step 2

You have two choices: the offical package from the Docker site or homebrew. I prefer homebrew because I like to manage my environment from the command line. The choice is yours.

brew update
brew install docker
brew install boot2docker

Step 3

First, we need to initialize boot2docker (we only have to do this once):

 boot2docker init
2014/08/21 13:49:33 Downloading boot2docker ISO image...
[ ... ]
2014/08/21 13:49:50 Done. Type `boot2docker up` to start the VM.

we can start up the VM. Do like it says:

boot2docker up
2014/08/21 13:51:29 Waiting for VM to be started...
2014/08/21 13:51:50 Started.
2014/08/21 13:51:51 Trying to get IP one more time
2014/08/21 13:51:51 To connect the Docker client to the Docker daemon, please set:
2014/08/21 13:51:51 export DOCKER_HOST=tcp://

Step 4

The Docker client assumes the Docker host is the current machine. We need to tell it to use our boot2docker VM by setting the DOCKER_HOST environment variable:

export DOCKER_HOST=tcp://


Step 5
