Docker Machine vs Powerstrip: What are the differences?

Developers describe Docker Machine as "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. On the other hand, Powerstrip is detailed as "A tool for prototyping Docker extensions". Powerstrip is implemented as a configurable, pluggable HTTP proxy for the Docker API which lets you plug multiple Docker extension prototypes into the same Docker daemon. For example, you can have a storage adapter (e.g. Flocker) running alongside a networking adapter (e.g. Weave), all playing nice with your choice of orchestration framework.

Docker Machine and Powerstrip belong to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack.

Docker Machine and Powerstrip are both open source tools. Docker Machine with 5.39K GitHub stars and 1.56K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Powerstrip with 309 GitHub stars and 31 GitHub forks.
