fabric8 vs Weave: What are the differences?
What is fabric8? Open source microservices platform based on Docker, Kubernetes and Jenkins. fabric8 makes it easy to create microservices, build, test and deploy them via Continuous Delivery pipelines then run and manage them with Continuous Improvement and ChatOps.
What is Weave? Weave creates a virtual network that connects Docker containers deployed across multiple hosts. Weave can traverse firewalls and operate in partially connected networks. Traffic can be encrypted, allowing hosts to be connected across an untrusted network. With weave you can easily construct applications consisting of multiple containers, running anywhere.
fabric8 belongs to "Microservices Tools" category of the tech stack, while Weave can be primarily classified under "Container Tools".
fabric8 and Weave are both open source tools. It seems that Weave with 5.56K GitHub stars and 512 forks on GitHub has more adoption than fabric8 with 1.75K GitHub stars and 530 GitHub forks.
