NAME
       docker-container-export - Export a container's filesystem as a tar
       archive

SYNOPSIS
       docker container export [OPTIONS] CONTAINER

DESCRIPTION
       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.

EXAMPLES
       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
