Default Docker entrypoint

I am creating an image from another image that set a specific entrypoint. However I want my image to have default one. How do I reset the ENTRYPOINT?

I tried the following Dockerfile:

  • Shipyard v2 for Docker fails to login
  • Vagrant start docker container after halt
  • java code for producer/consumer not able to connect kafka in docker setup
  • Can't see django site being run in docker container on localhost
  • How to run bower install inside a Dockerfile?
  • Compilation of program on Docker is slow
  • FROM some-image
    ENTRYPOINT ["/bin/sh", "-c"]

    Unfortunately it doesn’t work like the default entrypoint as it need the command to be quoted.

    docker run myimage ls -l /    # "-l /" arguments are ignored
    file1 file2 file3             # files in current working directory
    docker run myimage "ls -l /"  # works correctly

    How do I use commands without quoting?

    To disable an existing ENTRYPOINT, set an empty array in your docker file


    Then your arguments to docker run will exec as normal.

    The reason your ENTRYPOINT ["/bin/sh", "-c"] requires quoted strings is that without the quotes, the arguments to ls are being passed to sh instead.

    Unquoted results in lots of arguments to sh

    "/bin/sh", "-c", "ls", "-l", "/"

    Quoting allows the complete command (-c) to be passed to sh

    "/bin/sh", "-c", "ls -l /"
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
