How to Install Docker Compose on Linux Systems

1. Run this command to download the latest version of Docker Compose:

$ sudo curl -L$(uname -s)-$(uname -m) -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

Use the latest Compose release number in the download command. The above command is an example, and it may become out-of-date. To ensure you have the latest version, check the Compose repository release page on ~GitHub.

2. Apply executable permissions to the binary:

$ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

3. Optionally, install command completion for the bash and zsh shell.

4. Test the installation.

$ docker-compose --version

example output:

docker-compose version 1.21.0, build 1719ceb
