    Just wanted to make a quick correction:

    The CSS, HTML, and JSON intellisense is not exactly the same as it is in Visual Studio for Windows. A few of the features are still being added to Visual Studio for Mac.

    Can you please share this solution and is the docker preview enabled in the release version of visual studio for Mac?

    @fgun: Hey there! The Docker Support is part of the Alpha channel.

    Go to Visual Studio -> Check for Updates... and set the update channel to Alpha.

    The solution I use in this video is simply the default projects already on your machine. Nothing special there!

    Hello Kendra Havens.

    I set Channel to Alpha,

    but I don't see the "docker support" option

    I have this version of visual studio https://www.visualstudio.com/vs/community/

    I wanted to test out the docker support for Visual Studio for Mac. I've installed the Alpha channel version and found the 'Add Docker Support' button. However when I run, it just runs the application outside of docker. Is there anything additional I need to configure?

    I do have Docker installed.

    EDIT: I found that I need to make the docker-compose project the startup project.  After doing that it tries to start docker, but I get 'Execution failed'
