Feature Request: podman support


Podman is like Docker, except its containers can be run by non-root users.  Podman is a huge part of the new Fedora Silverblue distribution.

I see there's a Docker plugin for Clion.  Perhaps it could be extended to support any OCI container?  Podman and its ecosystem is supposedly compatible with Docker.

Hello everyone!

Here is a feature request for IntelliJ IDEA - https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-226650. Feel free to comment or upvote it. See https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/207241135-How-to-follow-YouTrack-issues-and-receive-notifications if you are not familiar with YouTrack.

Also feel free to open feature requests for other IDEs. For example, here is a PyCharm tracker - https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/PY.

YouTrack is more relevant place to show your interest in the feature by votes. 

It would be nice to have Podman support in Pycharm. Otherwise, I have to make a choice between Pycharm and Podman.


+1 for podman support on all IDE's,

we use Rider, Goland, PHPStorm, Intellij, RubyMine, DataGrip and CLion 


+1 for supporting podman.  Our system admin would really rather us use this instead of docker so we don't need to sudo root.


I would like to have this in PyCharm


+1 for supporting podman


We were half on the road to use docker as a nice deployment tool. But we decided to transition to use podman and Kubernetes so that we can stay fully in the paid RHEL and CentOs ecosphere. Please add podman to IDEA like you have e.g. maven lifecycles. Thank you folks.


Docker Desktop on windows is no longer free for large orgs.  Podman 2 via WSL or Linux is a requirement for most people now



+1, because Fedora Linux distro use Podman by default (out of the box)... and it's so complicated to switch back to (paid) Docker.

For GoLand and other IDEAs please.



+1, Podman is a requirement in where I work (RHEL/Fedora)


Still looking for podman support in CLion.  The 2024.1 documentation is inadequate to address the differences between docker and podman on Linux.


Phil B feel free to comment/upvote CPP-33230 and CPP-27398.
