Docker Prerequisites

Since Docker leverages the Operating System's virtualization technologies, the install requirements for Docker are specific.

OS X requirements:

  • 2010 or newer model with Intel's MMU virtualization
  • OS X El Capitan 10.11 or newer

Windows requirements:

  • 64-bit Windows
  • Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise or Education (not Home, not Windows 7 or 8) to install Hyper-V
  • Windows 10 Anniversary Update or better
  • Access to your machine's BIOS to turn on virtualization

Install Mongo Docker Image

Please run the following command to pull the official mongo docker image:

docker pull mongo:4.0.5

You can also pull my own docker image which has vim installed:

docker pull jbelmont/nosql-mongo-image-with-scripts:v1

Use the following shell script to get mongo running in your system:

##! /bin/bash

docker run --name mongo-image-4-with-scripts \
  --rm \
  -v ~/mongod_data.4.0.5:/data/db \
  -p 27017:27017 \
  -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
  -d jbelmont/nosql-mongo-image-with-scripts:v1

Then you can run the script like this in a Unix Shell:

sh scripts/

Install the Mongo client

Ubuntu/Debian via apt

sudo apt install mongodb-clients

OSX via Homebrew

brew tap mongodb/brew
brew install [email protected]

Windows via chocolatey

choco install mongodb

Get into mongo shell

Once you run the above command you should be able to get into running docker container like this in a shell session:
