docker images != get-containerimage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Seems like there is little consistency between managing containers in docker and powershell.

    Take for example the list of images "docker images" and "Get-ContainerImage", I would have thought the two returned the same list. Can someone confirm this?

    So if you create an image in powershell you can start a container from it using docker. If this is not the case then the powershell commands seem a little redundant as an alternative stack to docker.

  • Is "PowerShell for Docker" the new modules replacing the old stuff?

    Yes! With the PowerShell commandlets, you can use both PowerShell and the Docker CLI to manage the same set of images and containers in the on Docker daemon running on the host.
