What is the export folder inside IPFS?

Hi guys, hope you all are having a good day.

Wondering what is the /export folder inside IPFS. This folder does not exist in my IPFS node

I saw this in the docker tutorial: Run IPFS inside Docker | IPFS Docs

export ipfs_staging=</absolute/path/to/somewhere/>
docker run -d --name ipfs_host -v $ipfs_staging:/export ...

Many thanks!

I don’t know about any IPFS export folder.

I belive it’s a dockerism to transmit files inside and outside of the docker.

Thanks for the information Jorropo
