Install Docker Compose

After installing Docker, you may also want to install Docker Compose. This tool allows you to manage applications that rely on multiple containers instead of just one.

This tutorial assumes you are running Debian 8 or Ubuntu 16.04.

sudo apt-get install python-pip -y
sudo pip install --upgrade pip
sudo pip install docker-compose

To test that you have successfully installed docker compose, run the following command:

docker-compose --version

You should get output similar to:

docker-compose version: 1.5.1
