Introduction to Docker Init

The Docker team has developed docker init , a new command-line interface (CLI) command introduced as a beta feature that simplifies the process of adding Docker to a project.

The new docker init command automates the creation of necessary Docker assets, such as Dockerfiles, Compose files, and .dockerignore files, based on the characteristics of the project. By executing the docker init command, developers can quickly containerize their projects. Docker init is a valuable tool for developers who want to experiment with Docker, learn about containerization, or integrate Docker into their existing projects.
