Docker Wait

docker wait command will block one or multiple containers until it is stopped. Once the container is stopped it will retun 0 meaning that the container is stopped.

  docker run --name akilan_container -d nginx

  docker wait akilan_container

//opening a new instance and stopping it there

docker stop akilan_container

//The exit code will be returned below the wait instance
