Podman–Pull images from Docker Hub

Docker Hub is a container registry provided by Docker, Inc. It serves as a central repository for finding and sharing container images.  Although it is not the only place where docker images can be found it remains a popular container registry where developers and open source contributors can store, discover, and distribute container images.

Pull through Docker Desktop

To pull an image through Docker Desktop, you can use the following command:

docker pull <image-name>

For example, if I want to fetch the masstransit/rabbitmq image, I should execute the following command:

docker pull masstransit/rabbitmq


Pull through Podman Desktop

What if I try to do the same thing through Podman Desktop:

podman pull masstransit/rabbitmq

This seems to work:

However it is important to understand what is going on. If you don’t specify a registry name like we did here it look through the list of unqualified-search-registries. This list can be found inside the podman-machine at /etc/containers/registries.conf which contains docker.io by default.

If you want to play safe, you can prefix the image name with the docker.io/ registry name:

podman pull docker.io/masstransit/rabbitmq

Help! I accidently enabled HSTS–on localhost

I ran into an issue after accidently enabling HSTS for a website on localhost. This was not an issue for the original website that was running in IIS and had a certificate configured. But when I tried to run an Angular app a little bit later on http://localhost:4200 the browser redirected me immediately to https://localhost . Whoops! That was not what I wanted in this case. To fix it, you need to go the network settings of your browser, there are available at: chrome://net-internals/#hsts edge://net-internals/#hsts brave://net-internals/#hsts Enter ‘localhost’ in the domain textbox under the Delete domain security policies section and hit Delete . That should do the trick…
