dotmesh vs Microcontainers: What are the differences?
What is dotmesh? Capture, organize, and share application states using a git-like CLI. Dotmesh captures snapshots from stateful Docker and Kubernetes applications as ’datadots‘, and gives you the ability to label, store and share them as you would with version-controlled code. Dotmesh is an open–source primitive that can be accessed via CLI or API.
What is Microcontainers? Tiny, Portable Docker Containers. A Microcontainer contains only the OS libraries and language dependencies required to run an application and the application itself. Nothing more. Rather than starting with everything but the kitchen sink, start with the bare minimum and add dependencies on an as needed basis.
dotmesh and Microcontainers can be categorized as "Container" tools.
dotmesh and Microcontainers are both open source tools. It seems that Microcontainers with 1.56K GitHub stars and 137 forks on GitHub has more adoption than dotmesh with 472 GitHub stars and 17 GitHub forks.
