One and half year ago, I wrote an article about using Docker on Fedora 32. At the time of writing, there were multiple issues that had to be addressed, making for a rather lengthy tutorial.
To this day, that article is still quite popular but I occasionally see people linking it, even if some of the information is outdated. As such, I wish to write a new article as a follow-up to this article.
The contents would roughly be:
- Official Docker Inc Repo
- Moby white-label Fedora Repo
- Basic usage
- Run a single image
- Use docker-compose
- Basic UI tool
- Integration VS Code / VS Codium
Now… I am a great supported of Podman and I was thinking about writing an article about migrating from Docker to podman… but there are already quite a few articles about Podman so I think it would be best to hold off on a ‘migration’-article for a bit.
Also… sometimes people just want to use Docker for compatibility with their team, or because they are playing the long con: First show that Fedora is an A-class OS that supports all the cool toys, and then slowly introduce new and improved systems.
Either way, With this article I want to stay close to the material and just show and tell about Docker.
