charms.docker is available via pip. For source packages, see GitHub.


Ideally you will do this in a virtualenv, and are familiar with working with the virtualenv package.

pip install charms.docker


charms.docker is built with Python3, so please make sure it’s installed prior to following these steps.

To install charms.docker from source, first get the source:

git clone

Move in to the charms.docker directory and run:

sudo python3 install

You can also access the Python libraries; however, your ``PYTHONPATH``
will need to be amended in order for it to find the charms.docker directory.
