Docker Compose Build On Windows - Show More Output

When helping others out with diagnosing "Docker issues", it has been frustrating that the build output on windows is rather different than when I am building on my Linux machines. It turns out that this was because Windows will be using BuildKit by default.

This can easily be resolved by specifying the --progress parameter. E.g.

docker-compose build --progress=plain

The other possible values are:

  • tty
  • auto
