Installation with OS X and Docker

This is a short instruction on how to install Anduril on OS X using Docker and how to test file sharing between OS X and Docker container and how to test the Anduril installation.

Install Docker Desktop

  1. Create yourself a Docker user account in Docker Hub.
  2. Download Docker Desktop for Mac.
  3. Follow the instructions from Docker documentation to install Docker Desktop.
  4. Sing in to Docker Desktop using your username and password.

Configure Docker Desktop

If you want to use port forwarding using local IP such as, set the host ip for port forwarding in Docker’s Preferences > Daemon > Advanced by adding line “ip” : “<ip for port forwarding>” to the configuration file, for example:

  "debug" : true,
  "ip" : "",
  "experimental" : true

Start the Anduril container

Container can be started with command

    docker run -p 8000:8000 -td -v $(pwd)/shared:/opt/shared anduril/core bash

This should start downloading Anduril container if it is not installed and show the following messages:

    Unable to find image 'anduril/core:latest' locally
    latest: Pulling from anduril/core
    6cf436f81810: Downloading [=========>

The name and ID of the running container can be obtained with command

    docker container ls

You should obtain a list with following headers:

    CONTAINER ID        IMAGE           ...   PORTS                      NAMES
    3bd695dbc87d        anduril/core    ...>8000/tcp   kind_yonath

Connect to a running Anduril container

Now you can connect from terminal to Anduril container with the container name (or id):

    docker exec -it kind_yonath /bin/bash

You should be connected to the container and see a command prompt such as:


Test the file sharing:

In your local machine, create a file, for example workflow.scala in ~/shared folder with the following contents:

#!/usr/bin/env anduril

import anduril.builtin._
import org.anduril.runtime._

object HelloWorld {
  info("Beginning workflow construction")
  val helloWorld = BashEvaluate(script = "echo Hello world!")
  info("Ending workflow construction")

In Anduril container, check if the file exists:

    cd /opt/shared

Test the Anduril:

Run the following command in /opt/shared in Anduril container:

    anduril run workflow.scala

This should yeald result as described in Getting started: workflows. The same result can be obtained when the file is made executable:

    chmod +x workflow.scala

and run with command.
