🧪 Docker Hub Tool

⚠️ This tool is a Docker experiment to build a Docker Hub CLI tool. The intention of this project is to get user feedback and then to add this functionality to the Docker CLI.

The Docker Hub Tool is a CLI tool for interacting with the Docker Hub. It makes it easy to get information about your images from the terminal and to perform Hub maintenance tasks.

Get started



  • Download the latest release for your platform from here
  • Extract the package and place the hub-tool binary somewhere in your PATH


  • Install from sources: GO111MODULE=on go get

Login to Docker Hub

Login to the Docker Hub using your username and password:

hub-tool login yourusername

Note: When using a personal access token (PAT), not all functionality will be available.

Docker wants to work with the community to make a tool that is useful and to ensure that its UX is good. Remember that this is an experiment with the goal of incorporating the learnings into the Docker CLI so it has some rough edges and it's not meant to be a final product.


Please leave your feedback in the issue tracker! We'd love to know how you're using this tool and what features you'd like to see us add.


At this stage of the project, we're mostly looking for feedback. We will accept pull requests but these should be limited to minor improvements and fixes. Anything larger should first be discussed as an issue. If you spot a bug or see a typo, please feel free to fix it by putting up a pull request!




To build for your current platform, simply run make and the tool will be output into the ./bin directory:

$ make
docker build --build-arg GO_VERSION=1.16.3 --build-arg ALPINE_VERSION=3.12.0 --build-arg GOLANGCI_LINT_VERSION=v1.31.0-alpine --build-arg TAG_NAME= --build-arg GOTESTSUM_VERSION=0.5.2 --build-arg BINARY_NAME=hub-tool --build-arg BINARY=hub-tool . \
                --output type=local,dest=./bin \
                --platform local \
                --target hub
