Get Start


An integrated, easy-to-deploy environment for building, assembling, and shipping applications from a Mac, Docker for Mac is a native Mac application architected from scratch, with a native user interface and auto-update capability, deeply integrated with OS X native virtualization, Hypervisor Framework, networking and file system, making it faster and more reliable than previous ways of getting Docker on a Mac.


  • Mac must be a 2010 or newer model, with Intel’s hardware support for memory management unit (MMU) virtualization; i.e., Extended Page Tables (EPT)

  • OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite or newer

  • At least 4GB of RAM

1、Start a Dockerized web server

docker run -d -p 80:80 --name webserver nginx, If the image is not found locally, Docker will pull it from Docker Hub.

houbinbindeMacBook-Pro:bin houbinbin$ docker run -d -p 80:80 --name webserver nginx
Unable to find image 'nginx:latest' locally
latest: Pulling from library/nginx

Status: Downloaded newer image for nginx:latest

2、Run docker ps while your web server is running to see details on the webserver container.

houbinbindeMacBook-Pro:bin houbinbin$ docker ps
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE               COMMAND                  CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                         NAMES
864d97edfc07        nginx               "nginx -g 'daemon off"   4 minutes ago       Up 4 minutes>80/tcp, 443/tcp   webserver

3、Stop or remove containers and images

The nginx webserver will continue to run in the container on that port until you stop and/or remove the container. If you want to stop the webserver, type: docker stop webserver and start it again with docker start webserver

houbinbindeMacBook-Pro:bin houbinbin$ docker stop webserver
houbinbindeMacBook-Pro:bin houbinbin$ docker start  webserver

To stop and remove the running container with a single command, type: docker rm -f webserver. This will remove the container, but not the nginx image. You can list local images with docker images. You might want to keep some images around so that you don’t have to pull them again from Docker Hub. To remove an image you no longer need, use docker rmi <imageID>|<imageName>.

For example, docker rmi nginx.


Docker has client and server, the server is a daemon to manager all containers.
