I recently started Docker extensively for work and realised it was time to dump the common commands somewhere. That somewhere is HERE!

The official documentation exists [here]

Note: A common docker image terminal looks like user_name@container_id

  • Open a current docker image in another terminal

docker exec -it container_id bash

  • Pull a Docker Image from the cloud

docker pull user_name/build_environment_name:tag

  • Copy files from docker image to the host machine

docker cp container_id:/path/to/file/in/docker /host/machine/destination/folder

  • Copy files from host machine to the docker image

docker cp /host/machine/file container_id:/path/to/destination/folder
