macOS and Docker support



It would be incredibly useful to use the Docker service inside a macOS/osx environment. We’re currently restricted to using the macOS environment but need to create docker images from our build artifacts.

Until this is supported, are there any workarounds for using Docker inside macOS for CircleCI?


Thanks for your feature request. Our macOS environment is intended for building applications to be deployed on iOS/OSX/macOS. None of those use Docker to deliver apps so it’s not a workflow we’re planning to support any time soon.

For workflows that require Docker images to be created as part of the CI process we’d suggest separating that part of the project into a different repo and running on a Linux build environment.

(Sidenote: Docker on macOS is still evolving fast and has rough edges, so supporting this in a CI environment would only add additional complexity.)
