Docker implements a lightweight virtualization technique allowing to isolate applications including complex dependencies (such as a minimal subset of a particular Linux distribution) in a portable container.
Install the docker package.
$ sudo dnf install docker
Start the Docker daemon.
$ sudo systemctl start docker
To make Docker start at boot, run sudo systemctl enable docker.
Verify that Docker is working:
$ sudo docker run -i -t fedora /bin/bash
The following happens if there is no local fedora image available:
Unable to find image 'fedora:latest' locally latest: Pulling from docker.io/fedora 48ecf305d2cf: Pull complete ded7cd95e059: Already exists docker.io/fedora:latest: The image you are pulling has been verified.

Testing your Docker setup
Test your Docker setup with the fedora image:
$ sudo docker pull fedora
Run the following command to run "Hello World" by means of Busybox:
$ sudo docker run fedora /bin/echo hello world
The following text appears: hello world
This command displays system-wide information about docker.

This command runs a docker container.
$ sudo docker run busybox /bin/echo this is an echo
The above command runs busybox, calls /bin/echo, and passes the string "this is an echo" to busybox.
$ sudo docker run -i -t a87ecb4f327c /bin/bash
The above command runs image a87ecb4f327c interactively (-i) with a pseudo-teletype interface (-t), and delivers you into a BASH shell.
Mapping container ports to host ports
$ docker run -p 8080:80 -d -i -t fedora/httpd
The above command runs fedora/httpd in a container in detached mode, interactively, with a pseudo-teletype. Container port 80 is mapped to host port 8080 by means of the part of the command reading -p 8080:80.
This command shows containers. By default, the command shows only running containers.
$ sudo docker ps
To show all containers (including containers that are not running), use this command:
$ sudo docker ps -a
Upstream for Fedora Dockerfiles is available at: https://github.com/fedora-cloud/Fedora-Dockerfiles
These Dockerfiles are also available as a package
$ sudo dnf -y install fedora-dockerfiles $ ls /usr/share/fedora-dockerfiles
