Docker Machine vs dockersh: What are the differences?
Docker Machine: Machine management for a container-centric world. Machine lets you create Docker hosts on your computer, on cloud providers, and inside your own data center. It creates servers, installs Docker on them, then configures the Docker client to talk to them; dockersh: A shell which places users into individual docker containers. dockersh is designed to be used as a login shell on machines with multiple interactive users. When a user invokes dockersh, it will bring up a Docker container (if not already running), and then spawn a new interactive shell in the container's namespace.
Docker Machine and dockersh can be categorized as "Container" tools.
Docker Machine and dockersh are both open source tools. It seems that Docker Machine with 5.39K GitHub stars and 1.56K forks on GitHub has more adoption than dockersh with 1.28K GitHub stars and 76 GitHub forks.
