astro dev stop


The behavior and format of this command are the same for both Astro and Software.

Pause all Docker containers running your local Airflow environment. Unlike astro dev kill, this command does not prune mounted volumes and delete data associated with your local Postgres database. If you run this command, Airflow connections and task history will be preserved.

This command can be used regularly with astro dev start to apply changes to your Astro project as you test and troubleshoot DAGs. For more information, read Build and run a project locally.
