Docker Swarm Visualizer vs kaniko: What are the differences?

What is Docker Swarm Visualizer? A visualizer for Docker Swarm using the Docker Remote API, Node.JS, and D3. Each node in the swarm will show all tasks running on it. When a service goes down it'll be removed. When a node goes down it won't, instead the circle at the top will turn red to indicate it went down. Tasks will be removed.

What is kaniko? Build container images in Kubernetes. A tool to build container images from a Dockerfile, inside a container or Kubernetes cluster kaniko doesn't depend on a Docker daemon and executes each command within a Dockerfile completely in userspace. This enables building container images in environments that can't easily or securely run a Docker daemon, such as a standard Kubernetes cluster..

Docker Swarm Visualizer and kaniko can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.

Docker Swarm Visualizer and kaniko are both open source tools. It seems that kaniko with 3.96K GitHub stars and 311 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Docker Swarm Visualizer with 2.58K GitHub stars and 406 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to Docker Swarm Visualizer and kaniko?
    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 Compose
    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.
    Helm
    Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.
    Rancher
    Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
    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.
