I’ve done quite a few fresh installs recently.
What I noticed was that the wording of the first response in the process of checking if Docker is installed.
"Failed to find Docker … etc
The use of the word ‘failed’ as a first response on most installs isn’t good feedback to anyone unfamiliar with the command line.
You copy and paste
sudo -s git clone https://github.com/discourse/discourse_docker.git /var/discourse cd /var/discourse
and it results in failure unless Docker is already installed, which is quite improbable in most cases.
Can the wording be changed to something less negative?
"Docker not found …
"[AS EXPECTED] … Docker is not installed …
"Next step is to install Docker as it isn’t presently installed …
"That Worked! - The next step is to install Docker as it isn’t presently installed …
@pfaffman I know you do a lot of installs, any thoughts?
