Running Lando on an Apple Silicon Mac
While I’ve done some NodeJS based development on my M1 MacBook, I had been procrastinating on doing anything Docker based. I had an opportunity to take the plunge today and decided to go for it.
My understanding is that this config is not officially supported for a variety of reasons,
but for me it pretty much just worked.
Here’s what I did:
- Downloaded and installed the Docker M1 Tech Preview
- Downloaded the latest Lando release (3.0.25 in my case)
- Installed Lando, being sure to customize the install to not install Docker Desktop over my existing tech preview.
- Created and started a Drupal 9 project
that just worked.
If I run into any quirks as I put it through the paces a bit more, I’ll update this post.
Update: Quirks already :)
Upon further restarts things seemed to be getting hung up on the message
Scanning to determine which services are ready... Please standby... ? I was able to get past this by adding the following to
.lando.yml as mentioned in this issue:
It works, but indicates that there is some mystery issue under the covers. So as the Lando installer says when I install using an existing version of Docker: YMMV.
