Docker Compose vs Skaffold: 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; Skaffold: Easy and Repeatable Kubernetes Development. Skaffold is a command line tool that facilitates continuous development for Kubernetes applications. You can iterate on your application source code locally then deploy to local or remote Kubernetes clusters. Skaffold handles the workflow for building, pushing and deploying your application. It can also be used in an automated context such as a CI/CD pipeline to leverage the same workflow and tooling when moving applications to production.
Docker Compose and Skaffold can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.
Docker Compose and Skaffold are both open source tools. Docker Compose with 16.6K GitHub stars and 2.56K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Skaffold with 7.16K GitHub stars and 589 GitHub forks.
