Docker Compose support for PyCharm


Hi there,

I'm using Docker 1.12.1 for Mac (running natively). 

When I try configure a Remote Interpreter for my project, I'm met with the following error (see screenshot below).

It looks like PyCharm is looking for a Docker Machine certificate, but I'm not sure why this is the case? Does PyCharm want to use Docker Machine and not expect Docker to run natively?

PyCharm supports Docker for Mac using socat workaround described in the comment After you install socat and run it with parameters described in the workaround you should go to PyCharm Settings > Build, Execution, Deployment > Docker ( and type tcp://localhost:2375 as API URL field value.
