I just put in a Dockerfile for some Python code I need to get into GKE.
% ls README.md app_DEV.yaml app_PROD.yaml db.py main.py requirements.txt
I went through a couple of cycles of docker build before I got it done.
Then docker suggested a docker scan to look for vulnerabilities I tried it but left off the . after the command, which left me with an extra ~ home directory down in the hierarchy where I don’t want it:
% ls Dockerfile README.md app_DEV.yaml app_PROD.yaml db.py main.py requirements.txt ~
What’s the safest way to remove this? Python removing this directory entry? I don’t want to goof and wipe my entire home directory.
Thanks for any suggestions!
Place the ~ in quotes:
rm -r "~"
This tells bash not to “expand” the tilda into your home directory.
If you want to test first, do:
echo ~ echo "~"
and you’ll see that the first echo gives your home directory, and the second the tilda character. Let me know if you run into trouble!
