Developing with Docker on Windows


First install chocolatey

Then choco install docker-for-windows

Install vscode plugin Docker

Run a Dockerfile from vscode

Open “Docker Desktop” from start menu, and wait for the popup “Docker Desktop is now up and running”

In vscode right click Dockerfile -> Build -> hit enter to give it the default name.

In vscode on the Docker plugin tab, right click the image -> run interactive.

CLI Snippets

Take a look here for some fairly decent snippets.

Build a Docker Image

docker build -t image123 .

Run a Docker Container, and Open a Shell

docker run -it --name container123 image123

Run a Docker Container, Exposed on Port 25000, With An EntryPoint Defined in *.dll, and Delete the Container After Exiting the Shell

docker run -it -d --name container123 -p 25000:80 --entrypoint="dotnet" image123 YourAssemblyWithAnEntryPoint.dll

Inspect a Docker Containers’ File System That is Already Deployed

# list the running docker containers, look for the {containerid} for your container
docker ps -a -q
# create a snapshot, run it and open a shell
docker commit {containerid} mysnapshot
docker run -t -i mysnapshot /bin/bash
# when finished inspecting, delete the snapshot with:
docker rmi mysnapshot

Delete All Docker Images (dev machine only)

docker stop $(docker ps -q)
# a more brutal way of stopped a container than the above
docker kill $(docker ps -q)
docker rmi $(docker images -q)

Inspect the entire docker configuration, including port bindings/forwarding

docker inspect {containername}
