Install Podman Compose on Debian 11

The growth and use of Podman is really raging higher and higher. I hope one day it will be arm to arm with Docker. Today I assume that you have Podman installed on Debian 11 already. So the aim is to see how to install Podman Compose on Debian 11.


  • Debian 11
  • Podman installed
  • sudo access

Install podman-compose using PyPI on Debian 11

Step 1. Install python and pip as well.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install python3
sudo apt install python3-pip

Step 2. Install the latest stable podman-compose using pip3.

pip3 install podman-compose

Install podman-compose from GitHub on Debian 11

You can install podman-compose from Github as a source.

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

Install podman-compose using curl on Debian 11

And as always curl is here for you if you don’t like to use python and pip :).

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


To verify the installation run.
