There is a quick hack to get started with Podman just in case you are not familiar with the syntax though.
Step 1. First thing you got to make sure that both Docker and Podman are installed.
docker --version podman --version
Docker version 20.10.11, build dea9396 podman version 3.4.1
Step 2. Create an alias.
Step 3. Test things out by listing currently running containers in Podman.
CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES 48b6f110f166 docker.io/library/httpd:latest httpd-foreground 9 seconds ago Up 9 seconds ago 0.0.0.0:8080->80/tcp brave_hugle
Running Podman in root mode won’t cause you any headaches when transitioning from Docker. Although it might defeat the purpose since it’s supposed to be run in a rootless mode, which might be a topic for another day.
