DocumentationReferenceConfiguring an applicationAssigning a Docker Machine

Assigning a Docker Machine

To bind an application to a specific Docker Machine, open the application's package.json file and set the wolkenkit/environments/default/docker/machine property to the name of the Docker Machine that you want to use.

Choose the right environment

If you use an environment different than default, make sure that you use the name of the appropriate environment.

E.g., to bind an application to a Docker Machine named dev, use the following code:

"wolkenkit": {
  "environments": {
    "default": {
      "docker": {
        "machine": "dev"

Only works with docker-machine

You must have docker-machine installed for this feature to work.
