Capsule vs Pants: What are the differences?
Capsule: Dead-Simple Packaging and Deployment for JVM Apps. Packages any JVM application, no matter how complex, as a single, plain executable JAR. A capsule may directly contain all of the application’s dependencies or simply declare some or all of them, to be downloaded when launched; Pants: Build system by Twitter, Foursquare, and Square. Pants is a build system for Java, Scala and Python. It works particularly well for a source code repository that contains many distinct projects.
Capsule and Pants can be categorized as "Java Build" tools.
Capsule and Pants are both open source tools. It seems that Pants with 1.16K GitHub stars and 333 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Capsule with 1.13K GitHub stars and 79 GitHub forks.
