[Docker CLI] – Delete Containers

If you want to delete ALL containers , running or exited, you can do this with a single command.

docker stop $(docker ps -a -q)

docker rm $(docker ps -a -q)

If you only want to delete containers that have ‘exited’, then use:

docker ps -a | grep Exited | cut -d ‘ ‘ -f 1 | xargs¬† docker rm
