Docker Compose vs RuboCop: What are the differences?

Docker Compose: 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; RuboCop: A Ruby static code analyzer, based on the community Ruby style guide. RuboCop is a Ruby static code analyzer. Out of the box it will enforce many of the guidelines outlined in the community Ruby Style Guide.

Docker Compose belongs to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack, while RuboCop can be primarily classified under "Code Review".

"Multi-container descriptor" is the primary reason why developers consider Docker Compose over the competitors, whereas "Open-source" was stated as the key factor in picking RuboCop.

Docker Compose and RuboCop are both open source tools. Docker Compose with 16.6K GitHub stars and 2.56K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than RuboCop with 10.1K GitHub stars and 2.14K GitHub forks.

StackShare, Typeform, and CircleCI are some of the popular companies that use Docker Compose, whereas RuboCop is used by StackShare, WeLab Limited, and Keplar Agency. Docker Compose has a broader approval, being mentioned in 795 company stacks & 625 developers stacks; compared to RuboCop, which is listed in 44 company stacks and 25 developer stacks.

Decisions about Docker Compose and RuboCop
Michael Roberts

We develop rapidly with docker-compose orchestrated services, however, for production - we utilise the very best ideas that Kubernetes has to offer: SCALE! We can scale when needed, setting a maximum and minimum level of nodes for each application layer - scaling only when the load balancer needs it. This allowed us to reduce our devops costs by 40% whilst also maintaining an SLA of 99.87%.

To communicate isn’t just getting rid of syntax errors and making code work. The code should communicate ideas to people through a programming language that computers can also understand.

You should adopt semantic variables, classes, modules, and methods names. For instance, in Ruby, we avoid using particular prefixes such as is_paid, get_name and set_name. In their places, we use directly paid?, name, and name=.

My advice is to use idiomatic and features that the programming language you use offers to you whenever possible, and figure out ways to better pass the message.

Why wouldn’t we be worried about semantics, typos, and styles? We should care for the quality of our code, and the many concepts that define it. You can start by using a linter to collect some issues from your codebase automatically.

    What are some alternatives to Docker Compose and RuboCop?
    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
    The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere
    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.
    Helm
    Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.
    Ansible
    Ansible is an IT automation tool. It can configure systems, deploy software, and orchestrate more advanced IT tasks such as continuous deployments or zero downtime rolling updates. Ansible’s goals are foremost those of simplicity and maximum ease of use.
