Quick Docker Import/Export Utilizing gzip for Compression

IMAGE_NAME="repository:image_tag"
OUTPUT_FILE="/path/to/imageOutput.tar.gz"
#docker load < $OUTPUT_FILE
#docker save $IMAGE_NAME | gzip -c &gt; $OUTPUT_FILE

The above snippet keeps replacing the docker save line with the escaped version as &gt instead of >

AKA ->

IMAGE_NAME=”repository:image_tag”
OUTPUT_FILE=”/path/to/imageOutput.tar.gz”
#docker load < $OUTPUT_FILE
#docker save $IMAGE_NAME | gzip -c > $OUTPUT_FILE
