How do I restart a single container with docker-compose?

I am having some problem in docker compose

I am having a docker-compose.yml file that contains 4 containers: redis, postgres, api, worker

During the development of worker, I often need to restart it in order to apply changes. Is there any good way to restart a container without restarting the other containers?

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks.

Actually it's not that difficult. Here is what you can do. Use the command:

docker-compose restart worker

If you want you can set the time to wait for stop before killing the container.

docker-compose restart -t 30 worker

And you are good to go.
