Powerstrip vs Weave: What are the differences?
Developers describe Powerstrip as "A tool for prototyping Docker extensions". Powerstrip is implemented as a configurable, pluggable HTTP proxy for the Docker API which lets you plug multiple Docker extension prototypes into the same Docker daemon. For example, you can have a storage adapter (e.g. Flocker) running alongside a networking adapter (e.g. Weave), all playing nice with your choice of orchestration framework. On the other hand, Weave is detailed as "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.
Powerstrip and Weave belong to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack.
Powerstrip and Weave are both open source tools. Weave with 5.57K GitHub stars and 517 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Powerstrip with 309 GitHub stars and 31 GitHub forks.
