Note to self: Docker buildx view verbose output

I alluded to Docker buildx in a previous post. I used it in the context of multi-arch builds but it has a lot more features. It is actually a plugin that brings in features of a newer Docker build engine called BuildKit.

One thing with the BuildKit ending (or buildx plugin) is that the output is terse as it does multiple things in parallel. I keep Googling for the progress switch each time as it hasn’t become finger memory yet, so here’s a reminder for myself. Add --progress=plain to see verbose output.
