How do I deploy my first container with Powershell? RRS feed

  • Question

  • The official documentation only discusses deployment with Docker cli. 

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/windowscontainers/quick-start/quick-start-windows-server#3-deploy-your-first-container

    How do I get started with Containers with the Docker Powershell module? I'm unable to find the documentation.

  • Ayan,

    At this present time, no official documentation exists. We open sourced the development of the PowerShell module (found here: https://github.com/Microsoft/Docker-PowerShell). The PowerShell module has not garnered a lot of attention in the community and so it is not high on our priority list. We encourage anyone who wants to contribute that they are more than welcome. 

    If strong interest surfaces, then we'd be happy to go back and revisit how high this priority stands for us and review the status of documentation for it. Right now there's no tentative timeline.

  • None of them point to getting started with Windows containers with the Docker Powershell module.

  • The Docker module is available on the Powershell gallery

  • Is there a specific Uservoice link for documentation request?

  • You can post that idea here:

    I didn't see an existing idea similar to what you're asking so I think you're clear to mark it as a new idea.

  • This is all nice but WHY do we need some Docker endpoint to control Windows core technology? Among sysadmins (that I know) the sentiment is „I'm not installing anymore third-party sh*t“ about docker. Instead they wish for cmdlets as New-Container that were present in Technical Preview 5 that worked directly. I share that sentiment.
