Where did docker-containers go?

Hey guys

It seems like the docker-containers options was removed in nixos-20.09 and unstable?
I cannot find any alternative or a motivation for this removal though. Does anyone know what happened?


In the release notes you can find these 3 bulletpoints:

  • There is a new module for Podman( virtualisation.podman ), a drop-in replacement for the Docker command line.
  • The new virtualisation.containers module manages configuration shared by the CRI-O and Podman modules.
  • Declarative Docker containers are renamed from docker-containers to virtualisation.oci-containers.containers . This is to make it possible to use podman instead of docker .
