Docker: Find dockerfile of images

I’m interested in how some images are build, and would like to know where docker saves the images/Dockerfile. I’m using a Mac and the docker version is 1.9.0. On google I see a lot about boot2docker but I don’t seem to have that executable. I simply click the Docker Quickstart terminal and I can do

$> docker run dockerinaction/hello_world

I noticed that for the hello-word image I can find the dockerfile on, but for onedio/base-node5 I can’t. Is it possible to find the Dockerfile for base-node5 on ?

    Use dockerfile-from-images from centurylinkabs, that will create the Dockerfile, see

    You can get a lot of that info from the Docker History command

    docker history onedio/base-node5
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
