Docker clean up

Warning: This will destroy all your images and containers. It will not be possible to restore them!

Problem: You use Docker, but working with it created lots of images and containers. You want to remove all of them to save disk space. Some times I go deep in cowboy style development where all I want to do is do things fast. After this jam session I usually find my place ruined with tons of images and containers. It’s nice to start all things from scratch, and what you can do if you want to.

You can easily remove all images and containers by executing following lines.

# Delete all containers
$ docker rm $(docker ps -a -q)
# Delete all images
$ docker rmi $(docker images -q)
