Get Started Setting up Mac for Edge OS

These instructions will guide you through installing and configuring Git and Docker for Mac OS. We will also provide information on how to configure your terminal session proxies if you have not already done so.

Edge images and containers are built and deployed on several Linux distributions. If you are interested in developing and testing on an OS more closely resembling the target platform, consider using the DevBox VM for development (take a look at Quick Start with DevBox).

Docker for Mac is convenient and performs identically to Docker on a Linux host OS in most cases, but there are some situations in which Docker needs Linux host-system resources to build an image or run a container. While in general it is a best practice to create platform-independent Docker images, be aware that certain cases are unlikely to work on Mac.
