Could not connect to Docker, Homey Pro (Early 2023)

Im new to app development on homey. When testing a simple app, using VS code, everything works well when running the app on my Homey (Early 2018) but when I try to run the app on my new Homey (Early 2023) I get the error message “Could not connect to Docker”. The homey pro (Early 2023) is connected to both wifi and ethernet.

I don’t have docker installed locally, is it required to run apps on the 2023 version?

Any suggestion greatly appreciated.

To use the Homey CLI you will need to have the following prerequisites installed:

  • Node.js
  • Docker, for Homey Cloud and Homey Pro (Early 2023)

Thank you, I just read it in the getting started guide :see_no_evil:

You can also run remote in the Homey Pro (Early 2023) docker by specifying run --remote but thats slower.

See homey command line help for the exact syntax.
