Deis vs PythonAnywhere: What are the differences?
Developers describe Deis as "Open Source PaaS that builds upon Docker and CoreOS to provide a lightweight PaaS with a Heroku-inspired workflow". Deis can deploy any application or service that can run inside a Docker container. In order to be scaled horizontally, applications must follow Heroku's 12-factor methodology and store state in external backing services. On the other hand, PythonAnywhere is detailed as "Micro PaaS for Python web apps. Develop and host Python from your browser". It's somewhat unique. A small PaaS that supports web apps (Python only) as well as scheduled jobs with shell access. It is an expensive way to tinker and run several small apps.
Deis and PythonAnywhere can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.
"12-factor methodology" is the top reason why over 15 developers like Deis, while over 4 developers mention "Web apps" as the leading cause for choosing PythonAnywhere.
Deis is an open source tool with 6.12K GitHub stars and 863 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Deis's open source repository on GitHub.
