How to list docker images by name and tag

The docker images command accepts an optional [REPOSITORY[:TAG]] parameter, which limits the list to images matching the argument. If you only specify REPOSITORY and no TAG, the docker images command returns a list of all images in the specified repository.

Note : Use sudo before docker if you using ubuntu based environment


docker images [REPOSITORY[:TAG]]


To list all the images that start with python run the below command:

docker images python

If you are using [REPOSITORY[:TAG]] then it should be an exact match. consider the the image python has tag 3.7 then the command looks like:

docker images python:3.7

If you provide wrong tag, None will be displayed.
