# Use an official Node runtime as the parent image

  • docker images - list all downloaded images
  • docker build -t node-app:0.1 . - build image from sources with with tag node-app:0.1
  • docker rm my-app - remove image


  • docker ps - list all running containers
  • docker ps -a - list all containers including all which are stopped
  • docker run -p 4000:80 --name my-app node-app:0.1 - running container in attached mode
  • docker run -p 4000:80 --name my-app -d node-app:0.1 - running container in detached mode (in background)
  • docker stop my-app - stop container


  • docker logs <container-id> - displays logs
  • docker logs -f <container-id> - displays logs with follow
  • docker exec -it <container-id> /bin/bash - “enter” container (ssh replacement)
  • docker inspect <container-id>
  • docker ps --format='\t' - outputs all running container and label with key pl.xperios.project


  • docker tag node-app:0.2[project-id]/node-app:0.2 - create new image with new tag from existing one
  • gcloud docker -- push[project-id]/node-app:0.2 - push image to the gcr repository

To push images to your private registry hosted by gcr, you need to tag the images with a registry name. The format is [hostname]/[project-id]/[image]:[tag]. For gcr:

  • [hostname] is
  • [project-id] is your project’s ID
  • [image] is your image name
  • [tag] is any string tag of your choice. If unspecified, it defaults to “latest”.

Clean up

  • docker system df - docker disk usage
  • docker stop $(docker ps -a -q) - stop all containers
  • docker rm $(docker ps -a -q) - delete all containers
  • docker rmi $(docker images -q) - delete all images


Build with maven

  • docker run --rm -v "$(pwd)":/app -w /app maven mvn clean install - simple run
  • docker run --rm -v "$(pwd)":/app -v maven-repo:/root/.m2 -w /app maven mvn clean install - preserve local repo


  • docker run -it --rm --name my-running-script -v "$PWD":/usr/src/app -w /usr/src/app node:8 node your-daemon-or-script.js - run single script
