Jan 15, 2022 · 1 min read · Post a comment

When it comes to installing podman-compose on CentOS 7 it follows the same procedure as on the other RHEL-based distros and there are three ways to achieve it. You only need to make sure that python3 and pip3 are already installed on your machine.


  • Podman
  • Python3 and pip3

Install podman-compose using PyPI

To get the latest stable podman-compose version using pip3, run:

pip3 install podman-compose

Install podman-compose from GitHub

Get the latest development version from GitHub.

pip3 install https://github.com/containers/podman-compose/archive/devel.tar.gz

Install podman-compose using curl

Using curl is my preferred method:

curl -o /usr/local/bin/podman-compose https://raw.githubusercontent.com/containers/podman-compose/devel/podman_compose.py
chmod +x /usr/local/bin/podman-compose

Verify installation


podman-compose --version


podman-compose --help
