Ace vs Docker Compose: What are the differences?

Ace: Embeddable code editor written in JavaScript. Ace is a standalone code editor written in JavaScript. Our goal is to create a browser based editor that matches and extends the features, usability and performance of existing native editors such as TextMate, Vim or Eclipse. It can be easily embedded in any web page or JavaScript application; Docker Compose: Define and run multi-container applications with Docker. With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.

Ace belongs to "Collaborative Text Editor" category of the tech stack, while Docker Compose can be primarily classified under "Container Tools".

Ace and Docker Compose are both open source tools. It seems that Ace with 20K GitHub stars and 4.4K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Docker Compose with 16.6K GitHub stars and 2.56K GitHub forks.
