OpenShift CLI morsels: searching for an image

Searching for Docker images, templates and image streams is possible directly from command line

In search for ruby

Only resources completely matching the query will be returned. Search for ruby doesn’t return heroku/ruby. However, multiple searches can be combined in one query.

Showing only found templates, image streams or docker images

The result of the search can be narrowed down to one of the types. Instead of providing argument as --search <arg>, one of --template <arg> --docker-image <arg> or  --image-stream <arg>  can be passed additionally.

Search for template

Search only for image streams

Search only for docker images
