Docker for Desktop has changed their licensing forcing anyone not willing to pay to go back to the CLI tools. I hit some roadbumps removing the UI and installing the CLI tools. Here’s what I did to overcome them on macOS Big Sur.

Remove the GUI

First, remove the GUI by running the Uninstall in the Troubleshooting section. This is better than dragging the Docker.app to the Trash because it cleans up the LaunchDaemon and other crap.

Install Docker and VirtualBox

Installing the CLI tools for Docker can be done in a bunch of ways but I used brew:

> brew install docker-machine docker virtualbox

The Problem

Next you…

I have been thinking a lot about how data consumers work with producers to ensure they have access to the data they need in a format that is understandable and reliable. We have some great new tools like snowflake, alation, and looker for exploring, documenting, and visualizing data. As someone who has worked both with REST services and data processing systems, I find myself a little paranoid about the prospect of the data lake becoming a swamp due to a more distributed, open system of ingesting and publishing data.

Our data consumers should enjoy the same types of guarantees around…
