Docker Compose vs Otto: 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, Otto is detailed as "Development and Deployment Made Easy. The successor to Vagrant". Otto automatically builds development environments without any configuration; it can detect your project type and has built-in knowledge of industry-standard tools to setup a development environment that is ready to go. When you're ready to deploy, otto builds and manages an infrastructure, sets up servers, builds, and deploys the application.
Docker Compose can be classified as a tool in the "Container Tools" category, while Otto is grouped under "Virtual Machine Management".
"Multi-container descriptor" is the primary reason why developers consider Docker Compose over the competitors, whereas "Vagrant-like" was stated as the key factor in picking Otto.
Docker Compose and Otto are both open source tools. Docker Compose with 16.4K GitHub stars and 2.52K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Otto with 4.41K GitHub stars and 252 GitHub forks.
