Running docker on raspberry pi

 ·   ·  ☕ 5 min read

    Install docker on raspberry pi

    curl -sSL | sh

    Add non-root user to docker group

    $ sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

    Install Docker Compose

    sudo pip3 -v install docker-compose

    Start docker on boot

    $ sudo systemctl enable docker.service
    $ sudo systemctl enable containerd.service

    To disable this behavior, use disable instead.

    $ sudo systemctl disable docker.service
    $ sudo systemctl disable containerd.service

    Pull Image

    docker pull hello-world

    Run image

    docker run hello-world
    docker exec -it CONTAINER_NAME sh
    # Now you can enter command in the container

    List containers

    docker ps

    List image

    docker image ls 
    # List all available images in your machine.
    docker image ls -aq
    # list image ids only

    Build Image

    docker image build -t IMAGE_NAME:BUILD_NUMBER .
    # build image based on docker file in Current directory (.)

    Stopping container

    docker stop CONTAINER_ID 
    # copy container id from docker ps
    docker stop $(docker ps -aq)
    # stop all Running containers

    Remove container

    docker rm CONTAINER_ID
    # Delete Specific container
    docker rm $(docker ps -aq)
    # Remove all container

    Restart policy


    Do not automatically restart the container. (the default)
    Restart the container if it exits due to an error, which manifests as a non-zero exit code.
    Always restart the container if it stops. If it is manually stopped, it is restarted only when Docker daemon restarts or the container itself is manually restarted. (See the second bullet listed in restart policy details)
    Similar to always, except that when the container is stopped (manually or otherwise), it is not restarted even after Docker daemon restarts.
