       docker-container-ls - List containers

       docker container ls [OPTIONS]

       List the containers in the local repository. By default this shows only
       the running containers.

       Filter output based on these conditions:
          - ancestor=(<image-name>[:tag]|<image-id>| <image@digest>)
            containers created from an image or a descendant.
          - before=(<container-name>|<container-id>)
          - expose=(<port>[/<proto>]|<startport-endport>/[<proto>])
          - exited=<int> an exit code of <int>
          - health=(starting|healthy|unhealthy|none)
          - id=<ID> a container's ID
          - isolation=(default|process|hyperv) (Windows daemon only)
          - is-task=(true|false)
          - label=<key> or label=<key>=<value>
          - name=<string> a container's name
          - network=(<network-id>|<network-name>)
          - publish=(<port>[/<proto>]|<startport-endport>/[<proto>])
          - since=(<container-name>|<container-id>)
          - status=(created|restarting|removing|running|paused|exited)
          - volume=(<volume name>|<mount point destination>)

       The formatting option (--format) pretty-prints container output using a
       Go template.

       Valid placeholders for the Go template are listed below:
          - .ID           - Container ID.
          - .Image        - Image ID.
          - .Command      - Quoted command.
          - .CreatedAt    - Time when the container was created.
          - .RunningFor   - Elapsed time since the container was started.
          - .Ports        - Exposed ports.
          - .Status       - Container status.
          - .Size         - Container disk size.
          - .Names        - Container names.
          - .Labels       - All labels assigned to the container.
          - .Label        - Value of a specific label for this container.
                            For example '{{.Label "com.docker.swarm.cpu"}}'.
          - .Mounts       - Names of the volumes mounted in this container.
          - .Networks     - Names of the networks attached to this container.
