Docker Swarm vs Kitematic: What are the differences?
What is Docker Swarm? Native clustering for Docker. Turn a pool of Docker hosts into a single, virtual host. 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.
What is Kitematic? The easiest way to start using Docker on your Mac. Simple Docker App management for Mac OS X.
Docker Swarm and Kitematic belong to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack.
"Docker friendly" is the primary reason why developers consider Docker Swarm over the competitors, whereas "I like it because it sucks" was stated as the key factor in picking Kitematic.
Docker Swarm and Kitematic are both open source tools. Kitematic with 10.5K GitHub stars and 1.26K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Docker Swarm with 5.63K GitHub stars and 1.11K GitHub forks.
Docker, Bugsnag, and Dial Once are some of the popular companies that use Docker Swarm, whereas Kitematic is used by Docker, Car Throttle, and Athento. Docker Swarm has a broader approval, being mentioned in 82 company stacks & 38 developers stacks; compared to Kitematic, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

Visual Studio Code worked really well for us as well, it worked well with all our polyglot services and the .Net core integration had great cross-platform developer experience (to be fair, F# was a bit trickier) - actually, each of our team members used a different OS (Ubuntu, macos, windows). Our production deployment ran for a time on Docker Swarm until we've decided to adopt Kubernetes with almost seamless migration process.
After our positive experience of running .Net core workloads in containers and developing Tweek's .Net services on non-windows machines, C# had gained back some of its popularity (originally lost to Node.js), and other teams have been using it for developing microservices, k8s sidecars (like https://github.com/Soluto/airbag), cli tools, serverless functions and other projects...
