Bitnami Stacksmith vs Microcontainers: What are the differences?

Bitnami Stacksmith: Create custom container images in minutes. Pick your favorite development environments ready-to-run including: Python, Java, PHP, Go, Ruby and Node. Layer on the web frameworks you need to kick-start your project including: Symfony, Express, Rails, and Django; Microcontainers: Tiny, Portable Docker Containers. A Microcontainer contains only the OS libraries and language dependencies required to run an application and the application itself. Nothing more. Rather than starting with everything but the kitchen sink, start with the bare minimum and add dependencies on an as needed basis.

Bitnami Stacksmith and Microcontainers belong to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Bitnami Stacksmith are:

  • Creates custom container images in minutes, then lets you share them using a simple URL
  • Sends notifications of security issues and out-of-date components straight to your inbox
  • Makes it easy to package your web application or service in a unique container image

On the other hand, Microcontainers provides the following key features:

  • Size — MicroContainers are small. As shown above, without changing any code the image is 22 times smaller than a typical image.
  • Fast/Easy Distribution — Because the size is so much smaller, it’s much quicker to download the image from a Docker registry (eg: Docker Hub) and therefore it can be distributed to different machines much quicker.
  • Improved Security — Less code/less programs in the container means less attack surface. And, the base OS can be more secure (more below).

Microcontainers is an open source tool with 1.56K GitHub stars and 137 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Microcontainers's open source repository on GitHub.

              What are some alternatives to Bitnami Stacksmith and Microcontainers?
              Kubernetes
              Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
              Docker Compose
              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.
              Rancher
              Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
              Docker Swarm
              Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
              Docker Machine
              Machine lets you create Docker hosts on your computer, on cloud providers, and inside your own data center. It creates servers, installs Docker on them, then configures the Docker client to talk to them.
