It doesn't seem but i'm trying :D After 2 days of struggling, I decided to use docker only in the production environment of the servers that I manage, but in local I need the maximum flexibility, and with Docker I haven't had it. It would be really awesome to have all scripted with Docker, but i have the Brewfile and all the .ini files in my backups, I reset the mac every year and recreating the environment is a matter of minutes. I will surely continue to try to have a Docker env, but it's not my priority at this moment...but thanks for your comment! 💪

You reset mac every year? Hmm, interesting. Why?

I prefer a clean upgrade of the operating system. It's also a way of putting order in the lot of things that I try during the year, keeping only the ones that I use (or that I'm working on) and not reinstalling everything from a backup. I own an early 2015 MacBook Pro and with this procedure it is always smooth and fast, and, knowing that i will soon make a "great format", it forces me to keep my data always organized between a NAS and the repositories. It's like a purification ritual 😂

Ok ;) I have MBP from 2009 and 2015 and never do that ;) 👍
