A step-by-step tutorial on extracting the code files written in the image

Introduction

Docker Hub is a repository where you can find official images from Docker, verified publishers, and third-party enthusiasts. Before you pull any image, the best practice is to check the stars and the number of downloads. Also, check the image layers to avoid downloading any image with viruses or malware or spying on your host and copying any files from your host to another server.
