About Docker versions

Though mdk itself does not require a specific Docker version, it is often used in conjection with Docker features from the 1.40 Docker API. This is only supported by Docker releases >= 19.


$ pip3 install --user mdk

Note: you must have the mdk executable in your $PATH. If you used the installation instructions above, the executable is in ~/.local/bin.


Run the mdk command after installation for a full list of commands. For help on individual commands, use mdk COMMAND --help.


How do I add custom configuration to containers created by mdk?

mdk automatically loads additional options from two files:

  • ext.mdk.json located in the same directory as mdk.json
  • ~/.config/mdk/mdk.json
