Display comments in the image history

The docker commit command has a -m flag for adding comments to the image. These comments will be displayed in the image history.

$ sudo docker history docker:scm

Format the output
The formatting option (--format) will pretty-prints history output using a Go template.

Valid placeholders for the Go template are listed below:

Image grohtml-274331.png

When using the --format option, the history command will either output the data exactly as the template declares or, when using the table directive, will include column headers as well.

The following example uses a template without headers and outputs the ID and CreatedSince entries separated by a colon for all images:

$ docker images --format "{{.ID}}: {{.CreatedSince}} ago"
