pygmy is the single tool needed to get the local Docker Drupal Development Environment running on your Linux based system. It built to work with Docker for Mac! (quite a lot for such a small whale 🐳)

What pygmy will handle for you:

  • Starting the necessary Docker Containers for the Drupal Docker Development
  • If on Linux: Adds nameserver to your /etc/resolv.conf file, so that your local Linux can resolve * via the dnsmasq container
  • If on Mac with Docker for Mac: Creates the file /etc/resolver/ which tells OS X to forward DNS requests for * to the dnsmasq container
  • Tries to add the ssh key in ~/.ssh/id_rsa to the ssh-agent container (no worries if that is the wrong key, you can add more any time)
  • Starts a local mail Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) in order to test and view mails
