Docker Tip #1 - Kill all your containers

When developing with Docker you'll probably find a need to kill all your docker containers at once. While you certainly can kill them one by one the following command line takes care of it in a one-liner.

    docker kill $(docker ps -q)

If you use a bash shell I would recommend you create an alias for it so you can issue the command line in one go.

    alias docker-kill='docker kill $(docker ps -q)'
