Docker stop/kill all

Some commands I end up searching all the time:

docker stop $(docker ps -a -q) # stop all containers
docker rm $(docker ps -a -q)   # remove all containers
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You also can use docker container prune to remove all stopped containers

Ohh cool, didn't know about that command, just the system prune one, good to know :)

Do you know if adding --all removes running ones too?
