Podman platform support on Waypoint?


Getting my hands dirty on Waypoint for learning purposes.

The first step is to install a platform with waypoint install -platform=<platform>, however from my understanding, Podman is not in the list of available platforms (as of my writing: Docker, ECS, K8s and Nomad).

I’m currently running waypoint 0.11.3 on my Fedora machine with Podman version 4.5.1

I tried to set the platform to Docker and use alias docker=podman, but without success:

git clone https://github.com/hashicorp-education/learn-waypoint-get-started.git
cd learn-waypoint-get-started/docker/example-app

waypoint install -platform=docker -accept-tos
❌ Checking for existing installation...

  • Do some of you got successful using Waypoint with Podman?
    • If yes: how?
    • Else: is there a plan/roadmap to natively support Podman?
