astro dev bash

Run a bash command in a locally running Docker container for an Airflow component. This command is equivalent to running docker exec -it <container-id>.


In a locally running Astro project, run:

astro dev bash

By default, the command execs into the scheduler container and prompts you to run a bash command. To run a command in a different container, you have to specify a different container flag.
