The growth and use of Podman is really raging higher and higher. I hope one day it will be on the same level as Docker is today. Now, assuming that you have Podman installed on Debian 11 already, let’s see how to install Podman Compose on Debian 11.


  • Debian 11
  • Podman
  • sudo privileges

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:

podman-compose --help
