Docker Commands I Can Never Remember

June 14, 2019

I'm a Docker noob, and for whatever reason, I can never remember the best way to do things with Docker, whether it's checking which containers are running or starting/stopping them. Putting some common commands here mostly for personal reference.

List containers:

docker ps -a

Check container status:

docker inspect ID | jq .[0].State

Start container:

docker container start ID
