Running Docker on OS X

Feb 5, 2015

Recently I started using Docker for my side projects and for the Valley Hackathon a couple weeks ago. I really like the flexiblity and encapsulation that it offers, in contrast to tools like Vagrant. However, on a Mac, Docker runs on boot2docker, a tiny image built just to run Docker containers within VirtualBox. This can cause some problems with features such as shared folders, since the Docker container loads volumes from within the boot2docker machine, not your OS X machine.
