Search Docker Images in Docker Hub

Docker Hub is a cloud-based repository of Docker images, in which users can create, test, and store images that can be downloaded by other communities. Most of the time, required images are searched in official site of Docker Hub. It is also possible to search Docker images in Docker Hub via command line. This tutorial shows how to do that.

The docker search command can be used to search images by name in the Docker Hub. For example, run the following command to search images named ubuntu:

docker search ubuntu
