    --compress              Compress the build context using gzip.
    --force-rm              Always remove intermediate containers.
    --no-cache              Do not use cache when building the image.
    --pull                  Always attempt to pull a newer version of the image.

    --build-arg key=val     Set build-time variables for services.

Services are built once and then tagged, by default as project_service. For example, composetest_db. If the Compose file specifies an image name, the image is tagged with that name, substituting any variables beforehand. See variable substitution.

If you change a service’s Dockerfile or the contents of its build directory, run docker-compose build to rebuild it.
