Is anyone able to run docker-compose on a Mac?

Using OSX 10.11.1, first I installed the regular installer from Docker site and got this:

 → docker-compose --version 
Illegal Instruction: 4

Then I installed it through pip, the latest version, and got this.

    → docker-compose --version
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/docker-compose", line 9, in <module>
    load_entry_point('docker-compose==1.6.0dev', 'console_scripts', 'docker-compose')()

Was anyone able to make docker working on a Mac?

Which version of docker toolbox are you using? Check out which just got released and contains a native docker-compose

I already use DockerToolbox-1.9.0b. Or is there a newer version? If so, please give me a link, because the one you posted leads to DockerToolbox-1.9.0b.

Adding this to my .bash_profile solved this issue for me.

export PYTHONPATH=/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/:$PYTHONPATH


$ sudo easy_install bpython
