WebStorm 2023.2 Help

Docker tools settings

Specify the paths to the Docker CLI executables that WebStorm uses for interacting with the Docker daemon.

Enable the Docker plugin

This functionality relies on the Docker plugin, which is bundled and enabled in WebStorm by default. If the relevant features aren't available, make sure that you didn't disable the plugin.

  1. Press Control+Alt+S to open the IDE settings and then select Plugins.

  2. Open the Installed tab, find the Docker plugin, and select the checkbox next to the plugin name.

WebStorm should be able to automatically detect the Docker CLI executables in the default install location. However, if you installed Docker in a custom location, you may need to specify the paths manually.

Docker executable

Specify the path to the base Docker CLI executable. Default locations:

macOS and Linux



C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\resources\bin\docker.exe

Docker Compose executable

Specify the path to the Docker Compose standalone executable. By default, Compose V2 integrates into the Docker CLI platform via the docker compose command.

If you are using Compose V1, specify the path to docker-compose. For more information, see docker-compose vs docker compose.
