Compose command compatibility with docker-compose
compose command in the Docker CLI supports most of the
docker-compose commands and flags. It is expected to be a drop-in replacement for
If you see any Compose functionality that is not available in the
compose command, create an issue in the Compose GitHub repository so we can prioritize it.
Commands or flags not yet implemented
The following commands have not been implemented yet, and maybe implemented at a later time. Let us know if these commands are a higher priority for your use cases.
compose build --memory: This option is not yet supported by buildkit. The flag is currently supported, but is hidden to avoid breaking existing Compose usage. It does not have any effect.
Flags that will not be implemented
The list below includes the flags that we are not planning to support in Compose in the Docker CLI,
either because they are already deprecated in
docker-compose, or because they are not relevant for Compose in the Docker CLI.
compose ps --filter KEY-VALUENot relevant due to its complicated usage with the
servicecommand and also because it is not documented properly in
compose rm --allDeprecated in docker-compose.
compose scaleDeprecated in docker-compose (use
compose up --scaleinstead)
compose --compatibilityDeprecated in docker-compose.
