Docker Compose vs Habitus: What are the differences?
Developers describe Docker Compose as "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. On the other hand, Habitus is detailed as "A Build Flow Tool for Docker". Habitus is a standalone build flow tool for Docker. It’s a command line tool that builds Docker images based on their Dockerfile and a build.yml. This is particularly useful if your code is in compiled languages like Java or Go or if you need to use secrets like SSH keys during the build.
Docker Compose and Habitus can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.
Docker Compose and Habitus are both open source tools. It seems that Docker Compose with 16.4K GitHub stars and 2.52K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Habitus with 972 GitHub stars and 80 GitHub forks.
