Working with Docker Containers Made Easy with the Dexec Bash Script

Learn how to use dexec, a simple script that streamlines the process of accessing and interacting with Docker containers. This bash script automates the steps required to execute commands within a running container, eliminating the need to remember complex Docker commands. It works by searching for the container name provided as the first argument, and based on if a second argument is passed, dexec can run different code paths. Use cases include generating a migration file, running test suites or dumping container logs. Download the script, make it executable with chmod +x, and relocate it to your PATH to get started.
