Microcontainers vs Spread: What are the differences?
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.
What is Spread? *CLI to deploy Docker to Kubernetes in one command *. Redspread is a command line tool that builds and deploys a Docker project to a Kubernetes cluster in one command.
Microcontainers and Spread can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.
Microcontainers and Spread are both open source tools. It seems that Spread with 1.86K GitHub stars and 84 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Microcontainers with 1.56K GitHub stars and 137 GitHub forks.
