Bash script, which allow to use docker/compose as docker image.

That script requires only standard nix tools and provides auto-updates, without additional dependencies


  • sed
  • docker


curl -o ~/bin/docker-compose -s && chmod +x ~/bin/docker-compose

NOTE: You can download script in any location (which included in $PATH), but updater will try to edit script file when new docker-compose version will be released. That means, that you should have write permissions to target file, the best way is to place script in your home folder.


Same as docker-compose


Script will check updates every day, if new version will be released, script will update itself and download new docker/compose image
