Open the Docker desktop app from the command line on MacOS?

Is there a way to open the Docker desktop GUI application from the command line? I'm on a Macbook Pro M1.

I can use the Finder GUI and go to the Applications directory and open it from there.

But I was hoping I could do it from the command line.

You can use the open command:

open -a docker

This will open the Docker desktop GUI application.

You use the open command with the application path:

open /Applications/
