Helper commands for docker because typing long docker commands is boring...

Setup

cd ~
mkdir bin
cd bin
git clone git@github.com:timlinux/docker-helpers.git

Now add this somewhere to your ~/.bashrc:

export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin/docker-helpers

Warning: Some of these commands may be destructive - use at your own risk and test on a test system before using in a production environment.

Command quick reference

  • backup_docker_databases.sh - backup all 'postgis' image based databases
  • dcall - Commit all named containers. Provide a prefix for the image name. The committed image will be in the form <namespace>/<container name>.
  • dcalldated - Like the above command but adds a date stamp as the tag. The committed image will be in the form <namespace>/<container name>:01-Septmber-2014.
  • deall - Export all named containers. Exported containers will be named in the form docker-export-<container name>.tar.
  • dealldated - Export all named containers. Exported containers will be named in the form docker-export:<namespace>:<container name>:<date>.tar.
  • dimpall - Importing all exported containers from ~/exported-docker-containers into name:latest.
  • dipall - List the name and IP address of all named containers. Output will be in the form <container name> : IP Address.
  • dli - List all images. Shorthand for docker images.
  • dnames - List all the names of named containers.
  • dpasswords - Print the names and passwords from all named containers. When you set up your container, print any passwords to stdout so they show up in the docker logs command. Be sure to print the word password in your stdout message as this is a simple grep operation.
  • dps - List all running containers. Short hand for docker ps.
  • dpsa - List all running containers. Short hand for docker ps -a.
  • drmc - Remove all stopped containers.
  • drmi - Remove all images that have no tags.
  • dstart - Start all exited containers. Typically you want to do this after a host reboot.

Note: Docker namespaces must be at least 3 characters long and less that 30
