It depends what you want to do with Docker. The entries point are
"guix pack -f docker" and "guix system docker-image".

For example, the command

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
guix pack emacs         \
          -f docker       \
          -C none         \
          -S /bin=bin     \
          -S /lib=lib     \
          -S /share=share \
          glibc-utf8-locales tzdata coreutils bash
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

will populate the store with the Docker image containing emacs and
some other useful stuff. Then, load this generate image and find your
path with Docker:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
docker load < /gnu/store/i0lhyvaw8gfdh95vry2qkd5gzfcl6had-docker-pack.tar
docker run -ti emacs-glibc-utf8-locales-tzdata emacs -nw
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Even better: use the recent "--manifest=" option. ;-)

Considering more "complex" containers, see the section vm-image,
disk-image, docker-image in the manual [1].


Then you can find inspiration in these recent messages [2] and [3].


Hope that help.

All the best,
