Habitat vs Packer: What are the differences?
Habitat: Application Automation framework by Chef. Habitat is a new approach to automation that focuses on the application instead of the infrastructure it runs on. With Habitat, the apps you build, deploy, and manage behave consistently in any runtime — metal, VMs, containers, and PaaS. You'll spend less time on the environment and more time building features; Packer: Create identical machine images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration. Packer automates the creation of any type of machine image. It embraces modern configuration management by encouraging you to use automated scripts to install and configure the software within your Packer-made images.
Habitat and Packer can be primarily classified as "Infrastructure Build" tools.
Habitat and Packer are both open source tools. It seems that Packer with 9.09K GitHub stars and 2.48K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Habitat with 1.97K GitHub stars and 294 GitHub forks.
