How to COPY files of current directory to folder in Dockerfile
I’m trying to create a Dockerfile that copies all the files in the currently directory to a specific folder.
Currently I have
COPY . /this/folder
I’m unable to check the results of this command, as my container closes nearly immediately after I run it. Is there a better way to test if the command is working?

you can start a container and check.
$ docker run -ti --rm <DOCKER_IMAGE> sh $ ls -l /this/folder
If your docker image has
ENTRYPOINT setting, then run below command:
$ docker run -ti --rm --entrypoint sh <DOCKER_IMAGE> $ ls -l /this/folder
If it is only for testing, include the below command in your docker file:
RUN cd /this/folder && ls
This will list the directory contents while docker build
