TLDRthe Sole purpose of this post is to help me to return here time to time if I forget some of the commands. If this would be useful for anyone - praise me on twitter - http://twitter.com/gamussa.
Let’s start with small but important thing - how to erase everything Docker and start clean.
|Don’t do this if you’re on the plane. Downloading new images using airline’s wifi will be the pain. Proceed with caution. You have been warned.|
How many time you have found yourself running out of space in your laptop, and you don’t know who’s eating all the space. Usual suspects here are maven or gradle directory jar’s directory and Docker images directory.
❯ du -sh ~/.m2 2.4G /Users/viktor/.m2 (1) ❯ du -sh ~/.gradle 2.8G /Users/viktor/.gradle (2) ❯ du -sh ~/Library/Containers/com.docker.docker/Data/com.docker.driver.amd64-linux/Docker.raw 8.1G /Users/viktor/Library/Containers/com.docker.docker/Data/com.docker.driver.amd64-linux/Docker.raw
|1||Should I nuke it?|
|2||I definitely use Gradle more|
docker rm -f $(docker ps -a -q)
docker rmi -f $(docker images -q)
If I have a container that already running I can use
docker exec command to connect to it!
First, get the name of the existing container using
docker exec -it <container name> /bin/bashto get a bash shell in the container
docker exec -it <container name> <command> to execute whatever command you specify in the container.
`docker-compose run <container_name_in_yml_file> <command>`.
E.g. to get a shell into your kafka container, you might run
docker-compose run kafka1 /bin/bash
`docker-compose run <name in yml> sh -c '<command 1> && <command 2> && <command 3>'`
docker run command accepts command line options to specify volume mounts, environment variables, the working directory, and more.
