Red Hat CodeReady Containers - OpenShift 4 on your Laptop


This project is focused on bringing a minimal OpenShift 4.x cluster to your local laptop or desktop computer.

If you are looking for a solution for running OpenShift 3.x, you will need tools such as oc cluster up, Minishift or CDK.

Usage data

The first time CodeReady Containers is run, you will be asked to opt-in to Red Hat’s telemetry collection program.

With your approval, CodeReady Containers collects pseudonymized usage data and sends it to Red Hat servers to help improve our products and services. Read our privacy statement to learn more about it. For the specific data points being collected, see Usage data.

Manually configuring usage data collection

You can manually change your preference about usage data collection by running crc config set consent-telemetry <yes/no> before the next crc start.


Getting CodeReady Containers

CodeReady Containers binaries with an embedded OpenShift disk image can be downloaded from this page.

Using CodeReady Containers

The documentation for CodeReady Containers is currently hosted by GitHub Pages.

Building the documentation

You can find the source files for the documentation in the docs/source directory.

To build the formatted documentation, install podman then use the following:

$ git clone
$ cd crc
$ make build_docs

This will create a docs/build/master.html file which you can view in your browser.
