Install Docker on Raspberry Pi with one line command

📆 · 👀

The Command

Terminal window
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y && curl -fsSL https://get.docker.com | sudo sh && sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

Breakdown

Here’s the breakdown of it if you want to know what it does:

Terminal window
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y

This updates the package list and upgrades the packages on your Raspberry Pi.

Terminal window
curl -fsSL https://get.docker.com | sudo sh

This downloads the Docker installation script which is present at https://get.docker.com ↗️ and runs it with root privileges.

Note: Always check the script before running it with root privileges.

Terminal window
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

This adds the current user to the docker group so you don’t have to use sudo every time you run docker.
