Show docker containers commands

To list the docker running containers use the following command:

docker ps

To show all running containers use the -a (--all) option:

docker ps -a

If you want to filter, by name for example you can use the --filter option with the name=containing_text value

$ docker ps --filter "name=codever"

You could also obtain similar results if piping the docker ps command to grep - docker ps -a | grep codever
