Docker on mac stills seems like kind of a so-so operation, sometimes files don't sync and I lose hours to debugging issues with little to no feedback from the docker setup. Am I the only one experiencing this... ?

I heard a few people mentioned adding the delegated flag at some point:

    As I see only Mac and Windows users have file sync issues. I use Linux and don't have any problems.
    I also use Mac but there I'm still using Vagrant devvm, it's slower (composer dump -o resolves this issue partially), but much more stable.

    As a recommendation for docker users on Mac: if you are going to do some operation with big amount of files (git checkout branch, transfer:generate, prope:install, ...) STOP docker/sdk, do the file operations then START docker/sdk.

    With small number of changed files Mutagen works stable.

    Also having the mac-docker-sync problems now and then, but mostly its working. I sometimes open a tail on the .docker-sync/daemon.log to see if its working. 😄 Some colleagues started using the mutagen setup and seem to have less problems since then. Be sure to install the lastest mutagen beta when trying this.

    On Mac better switch to mutagen. It works fast and without issue..

    @U01JBB8LNTE You should monitor mutagen status somewhere in separate terminal to be sure everything is synced. After checkout or big file operations it can take a while.

    Just run

    docker/sdk sync logs

    and it will show the current status for you to be aware

    Yeh, been doing that (logging).

    the problems don't really surface only on sync but also on build, I've found a few checkboxes that seem to help a lot, namespaces def helps a bunch (that should be in the docs somewhere)

    And occasionally I just need to hard reset
