AWS CodeBuild vs Docker Compose: What are the differences?
What is AWS CodeBuild? Build and test code with continuous scaling. AWS CodeBuild is a fully managed build service that compiles source code, runs tests, and produces software packages that are ready to deploy. With CodeBuild, you don’t need to provision, manage, and scale your own build servers.
What is 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.
AWS CodeBuild belongs to "Continuous Integration" category of the tech stack, while Docker Compose can be primarily classified under "Container Tools".
"Pay per minute" is the primary reason why developers consider AWS CodeBuild over the competitors, whereas "Multi-container descriptor" was stated as the key factor in picking Docker Compose.
Docker Compose is an open source tool with 16.4K GitHub stars and 2.52K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Docker Compose's open source repository on GitHub.
