From a Release

The latest version of the docker-machine-driver-oneandone binary is available on the GithHub Releases page. Download the tar archive and extract it into a directory residing in your PATH. Select the binary that corresponds to your OS and according to the file name prefix:

  • Linux: docker-machine-driver-oneandone-linux
  • Mac OS X: docker-machine-driver-oneandone-darwin
  • Windows: docker-machine-driver-oneandone-windows

To extract and install the binary, Linux and Mac users can use the Terminal and the following commands:

sudo tar -C /usr/local/bin -xvzf docker-machine-driver-oneandone*.tar.gz

If required, modify the permissions to make the plugin executable:

sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-machine-driver-oneandone

Windows users may run the above commands without sudo in Docker Quickstart Terminal that is installed with Docker Toolbox.

From Source

Make sure you have installed Go and configured GOPATH properly.

To download the repository and build the driver run the following:

go get -d -u
cd $GOPATH/src/
make build

To use the driver run:

make install

This command will install the driver into /usr/local/bin.

Otherwise, set your PATH environment variable correctly. For example:

export PATH=$GOPATH/src/$PATH

If you are running Windows, you may also need to install GNU Make, Bash shell and a few other Bash utilities available with Cygwin.
