docker export [--help] [-o|--output[=""]] CONTAINER
Export the contents of a container's filesystem using the full or shortened container ID or container name. The output is exported to STDOUT and can be redirected to a tar file.
Stream to a file instead of STDOUT by using -o.
Export the contents of the container called angry_bell to a tar file called angry_bell.tar:
# docker export angry_bell > angry_bell.tar # docker export --output=angry_bell-latest.tar angry_bell # ls -sh angry_bell.tar 321M angry_bell.tar # ls -sh angry_bell-latest.tar 321M angry_bell-latest.tar
