On Linux the fastest way to get it is probably
sudo pip install docker-compose.
To test if your environment is ready, simply run the following status commands, if you do not see any errors, you are good to go!
docker version docker-compose version docker info docker ps
:warning: Running phd without Docker should work, but is not actively supported.
