  • Print out information about containers:

podman ps

  • List all containers (both running and stopped):

podman ps --all

  • Start one or more containers:

podman start {{container_name}} {{container_id}}

  • Stop one or more running containers:

podman stop {{container_name}} {{container_id}}

  • Pull an image from a registry (defaults to the Docker Hub):

podman pull {{image_name}}:{{image_tag}}

  • Open a shell inside of an already running container:

podman exec --interactive --tty {{container_name}} {{sh}}

  • Remove one or more stopped containers:

podman rm {{container_name}} {{container_id}}

  • Display the logs of one or more containers and follow log output:

podman logs --follow {{container_name}} {{container_id}}
