Docker crib sheet

Here are a list of commands that are useful for docker, docker-machine and docker-compose


// See what docker containers are running
> docker ps

// See which images exist
> docker images
> docker image ls

// See which networks exist (usually created as part of docker-compose)
> docker network ls

// See which volumes exist
> docker volume ls

Removing Images and Containers

// List the images and then remove one using the image id
> docker rmi <image_id>

// List the containers and remove one using the container id
> docker rm <container_id>

// Remove a volume
> docker volume rm <volume_id>

// Remove a network
> docker network rm <network_id>

Starting and stopping

// Start a particular image and routing 1234 on localhost to 5678 on the docker image.  For a web application you'll need to expose the application server port such as 8080 eg -p 8080:8080
// After running this it'll show up on a docker ps as a container running this image
> docker run -p 1234:5678 <image_id>

// Start an image in 'detached' mode to keep the output quiet
> docker run -d -p 1234:5678 <image_id>

// View the logs of the docker container running a particular image
> docker logs <container_id>

// Stop a particular container
> docker stop <container_id>

// Attach a shell to a running docker container
> docker exec -it <container_id> "/bin/bash"

// Start with an environment variable
> docker run -d -e MY_ENVIRONMENT_VAR=bob <image_id>

Other useful commands

// See what resources are currently being used
> docker stats

// Grab the logs from a docker machine
> dockers logs <container_id> > output.log

// Copy a file from a docker image to the local machine
> docker cp <container_id>:<container file path> <local path>
> docker cp ab34d4532e78:/tmp/log.txt ./


// Useful where the host machine doesn't support natively such as anything pre windows 10

// Get the ip of the docker-machine, usually
> docker-machine ip
