Run/Start Docker Container and execute command

In some situations you have to test different commands inside a docker container but you might not want to keep running in the background. Then you can use the following command which:

  • will start the container with docker_image
  • execute a command specified after the -c argument
docker run --rm -v `$(pwd)`:/temp_volume docker_image \
/bin/bash -c "cd /temp_volume && python3"
