The Docker Cloud CLI

Docker Cloud maintains a Command Line Interface (CLI) tool that you can use to interact with the service. We highly recommend installing the CLI, as it will allow you to script and automate actions in Docker Cloud without using the web interface. If you will only ever be using the web interface, this is not necessary.


Install the docker-cloud CLI either by running a Docker container, or by using the package manager for your system.

Install using a Docker container

If you have Docker Engine installed locally, you can simply run the following command regardless of which operating system you are using.

docker run dockercloud/cli -h

This runs a container that installs the docker-cloud CLI for you. Learn more about this container here.

Install for Linux or Windows

Open your terminal or command shell and execute the following command:

$ pip install docker-cloud

Install on Mac OS X

We recommend installing Docker CLI for OS X using Homebrew. If you don’t have brew installed, follow the instructions here:

Once Homebrew is installed, open Terminal and run the following command:

$ brew install docker-cloud

Validate the installation

Check that the CLI installed correctly:

$ docker-cloud -v
docker-cloud 1.0.0

Getting Started

First, you should log in using the docker CLI and the docker login command. Your Docker ID, which you also use to log in to Docker Hub, is also used for logging in to Docker Cloud.

$ docker login
Username: user
Login succeeded!
