I was previously using (and uninstalled) Docker Desktop if that provides any illumination.
I assumed it should be on this Node page, but I've clicked on each of the pods and I don't see my containers running
w
i think the dashboard is kubernetes focused and doesn’t show plain docker ps results
s
Oh jeesh. That was my primary use for Docker desktop. Any alternatives?
w
RD works fine for running containers, but if you need that GUI than maybe podman desktop might fit the need.
s
That GUI would be nice. Does Podman Desktop replace Rancher Desktop?
Just downloaded. Looks like just a nice GUI 🙂
w
it doesn’t have kubernetes support so not a drop in for RD, but if you just want a container UI it will manage the WSL2 just like DD and RD. There are other projects out there as well that can just connect to your DOCKER_HOST and visualize what is running.
s
Thanks! I think Podman will work for now
w
you may want to create a docker context or manually create a DOCKER_HOST env var if you use tools that assume docker cli vs nerdctl https://podman-desktop.io/docs/migrating-from-docker/using-the-docker_host-environment-variable
