Install Docker Machine

Installing Machine Directly
Install the Docker binary.

Download the Docker Machine binary and extract it to your PATH.

If you are running on macOS:

$ curl -L`uname -s`-`uname -m` >/usr/local/bin/docker-machine && \
  chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-machine

If you are running on Linux:

$ curl -L`uname -s`-`uname -m` >/tmp/docker-machine &&
chmod +x /tmp/docker-machine &&
sudo cp /tmp/docker-machine /usr/local/bin/docker-machine

If you are running with Windows with git bash:

$ if [[ ! -d “$HOME/bin” ]]; then mkdir -p “$HOME/bin”; fi && \

curl -L > "$HOME/bin/docker-machine.exe" && \
chmod +x "$HOME/bin/docker-machine.exe"

Otherwise, download one of the releases from the docker/machine release page directly.

Check the installation by displaying the Machine version:

$ docker-machine version
docker-machine version 0.12.1, build c8b17e8

Installing bash completion scripts
The Machine repository supplies several bash scripts that add features such as:

command completion
a function that displays the active machine in your shell prompt
a function wrapper that adds a docker-machine use subcommand to switch the active machine
To install the scripts, copy or link them into your /etc/bash_completion.d or /usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d directory. To enable the docker-machine shell prompt, add $(__docker_machine_ps1) to your PS1 setting in ~/.bashrc.

PS1='[\u@\h \W$(__docker_machine_ps1)]\$ '

You can find additional documentation in the comments at the top of each script.

How to uninstall
To uninstall Docker Machine:

Remove the executable: rm $(which docker-machine)

Optionally, remove the machines you created.

To remove each machine individually: docker-machine rm

To remove all machines: docker-machine rm -f $(docker-machine ls -q)

Removing machines is an optional step because there are cases where you might want to save and migrate existing machines to a Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows environment, for example.
