Habitus vs LinuxKit: What are the differences?
Developers describe Habitus as "A Build Flow Tool for Docker". Habitus is a standalone build flow tool for Docker. It’s a command line tool that builds Docker images based on their Dockerfile and a build.yml. This is particularly useful if your code is in compiled languages like Java or Go or if you need to use secrets like SSH keys during the build. On the other hand, LinuxKit is detailed as "A toolkit for building secure, portable and lean operating systems for containers". LinuxKit, a toolkit for building custom minimal, immutable Linux distributions. Designed for building and running clustered applications, including but not limited to container orchestration such as Docker or Kubernetes.
Habitus and LinuxKit can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.
Habitus and LinuxKit are both open source tools. LinuxKit with 5.65K GitHub stars and 685 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Habitus with 986 GitHub stars and 82 GitHub forks.
