Creating a docker image on my mac HELP!

Hi @ewanbrightspark :slight_smile: I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble using Tutor.

I’m not on a Mac, so can’t comment about Mac-specific issues, but you shouldn’t have to run any docker commands directly.

See Installing Tutor for the full docs, but there’s a lot there. So here are the steps I use to get my Tutor dev stack up and running:

# Using python 3.8 or 3.9, with the python3-venv module installed, use a python virtual environment
python3 -m venv .venv
source .venv/bin/activate

# Install Tutor and all its plugins
pip install "tutor[full]"

# Enable any extra plugins you want
tutor plugins list
tutor plugins enable --help

# This step will ask a few questions, then take care of everything for you, from pulling and building images to starting their services.
tutor dev launch 

# Go get a coffee. It'll be 15 min at least

Once it’s done, you’ll see a message like this:

All services initialised.
The platform is now running and can be accessed at the following urls:

The domain is mapped to / localhost, so the domain and subdomains should already be working for you.

But if your build throws errors, or if something isn’t working as expected, could you post the details here?
