Transfer files and directories between localhost and containers

Transfer files and directories between localhost and containers

To transfer files TO and FROM any POD in your namespace please use the following command:

node scripts/cli.js cp api:var/catalog.json catalog-copy.json

This command will copy the var/catalog.json file from the container with the role api to a local file named catalog-copy.json. You can do the reverse operation (uploading the local file) with the following command:

node scripts/cli.js cp catalog-copy.json api:var/catalog.json 

Note: You may transfer the whole folders (in both directions) with the same shell calls as presented above.
