How to Make Docker Images Smaller: docker-squash

By richardtylee.

docker-squash is a Go app that merges layers to make images smaller. The savings using docker-squash depends on how many layers it can effectively squash, so mileage may vary.

Let's squash richardtylee/railsapp and tag it as squashed:


REPOSITORY                      TAG                             VIRTUAL SIZE
richardtylee/railsapp squashed 1.119 GB
richardtylee/railsapp latest 1.141 GB

So we can save about 22 MB.
