$ docker stats

Get container logs

$ docker logs -f <CONTAINER>

Stop all running containers:

$ docker stop $(docker ps -aq)

Build in current directory

$ docker build -t \<image name\> .

Run image as container

$ docker run -d -p 8080:80 \<image name\>

Remove all containers / images: (Needs checking)

$ docker rm -vf $(docker ps -a -q)

Prune any containers / images that are lying around:

This will remove, stopped containers, networks not used by any container, volumes not used by any container, images not associated with any container, build cache.

$ docker system prune -a --volumes

Copy file out from container to working directory (.):

$ docker cp \<container id\>:app/2019-06-10.log.json .

Note that the above needed the 'app' portion of the path

Exec run commands on container (e.g. to list files)

$ docker exec -t -i  \<container id or name\> /bin/bash

Can then ls, but to read log file need to enter path and file name as a string.

$ cat "logs\2019-06-13.log.json"

Possible alternative

$ docker run --rm -it --entrypoint=/bin/bash app-software-journal-web-ui
