Switching from Vagrant to Docker for WordPress Development

These past few weeks I’ve been experimenting with Docker as an alternative to Vagrant (and VVV) for WordPress development.

I had looked into Docker in the past, but given how easy Vagrant and VVV were, I was in no hurry to switch. VVV still is awesome (there is an excellent getting started guide here), but since settling on Vagrant, the tools and ecosystem around Docker have significantly improved.

Mainly to satisfy my own curiosity, but also hoping to use less system resources (since I currently code on a Macbook Air) I finally gave Docker a fair chance. I wanted to share some of the things I’ve learned over the past week whilst switching.
