I can’t seem to find an answer to this, my apologies if I’m glossing over it.
I initially installed Docker about 1.5 years ago and worked with it for a while: this was what I think is now called the Docker Toolbox installation.
Last week I looked into using Docker again for another use case. I found that there is now Docker for Mac, got interested, and decided to update my old Docker Toolbox related install.
So far, so good - there’s just one thing that I wondered about. I still have the old Kitematic app from my previous installation of Docker and guessed that I should also update that.
However, it turns out that Kitematic is now part of the Docker Toolbox - but I just learned when updating to Docker for Mac that Docker Toolbox uses a different set of symlinks in /usr/local/bin than Docker for Mac does.
In other words: if I were to update Kitematic by re-installing the Docker Toolbox - wouldn’t that overwrite the /usr/local/bin links again, breaking Docker for Mac?
Other than that, it is also somewhat confusing to read here that Kitematic is a legacy solution and it’s recommended to upgrade to Docker for Mac - which suggests that Kitematic does not provide any added functionality over Docker for Mac - but why then is Kitematic still in the Docker for Mac menu?
