If you use Docker for Mac or something similar, Docker Compose will be installed along with it. Docker Compose has a different release timeline for Docker for Mac so you will not be able to try latest version of Docker compose until you upgrade Docker for Mac. This is limiting. You should be able to install Docker compose independently. To achieve that, you can run following command
$ composeVersion=1.13.0 $ curl -L https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/$composeVersion/docker-compose-`uname -s`-`uname -m` > /usr/local/bin/docker-compose$ chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
In the above commands,
$ signify bash prompt. You don’t have to type it. Now, you can check Compose version using the command shown below.
$ docker-compose version
