Running Docker on M1 Mac - docker: compose is not a docker

David Carr


When upgrading from an Intel mac to an Apple Silicone I noticed docker fails to run. I'm using Laravel Sail when Sail is installed or when a sail up command is attempted I get an error: 

docker: 'compose' is not a docker command

The reason for this is a docker-compose is now a plugin. Docker needs docker-compose to be installed. Use brew to install docker-compose

brew install docker-compose

Once installed sail will function normally without any extra setup.
