Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Buildpacks and Paketo with Ram Iyengar
dev.to | 2021-09-15
Ram: Yeah. I'm glad you asked that question because, like I mentioned, there are like two peaks to the Buildpacks adoption sort of curve. In the first version or first avatar of Buildpacks, they weren't very agile in terms of the platform, the end platform that they would deploy to. So Heroku started off with this. I think they open-sourced a lot of the internals. And then Cloud Foundry, which was Pivotal back in the day, had their own version of Buildpacks with their own version of the life cycle and everything. And so, it was very distinct in terms of what the target platform was for the Buildpacks to go out and make a deployment. Between the first and the second sort of peaks, Docker, or rather the popularity of containers, really took off. So Docker happened. I am just using Docker and containers very interchangeably, so; please forgive me for that.

Cloud Foundry is an open-source tool for writing code in any language, with any framework, on any Kubernetes cluster. Provides a highly secure environment in which you can bypass complex configuration and routine operational tasks. Integrates with your environment and tools, including CI/CD and IDEs. Security patches are implemented quickly in response to vulnerabilities, so it stays secure for sensitive, mission-critical application development.
Datadog Reveals Hidden AWS Performance Problems

At Lob, we currently use Convox as our deployment platform, a “roll your own Platform-as-a-Service” that you can install to handle container orchestration on AWS’s ECS (Elastic Container Service). Convox is showing its age and this year we began the process of replacing Convox with HashiCorp’s Nomad, a flexible workload orchestrator to deploy and manage our containers on AWS.
How are you guys deploying containers?

its an orchestration tool similar to something like K8S https://www.nomadproject.io/
Podman in Linux

That does seem better! Of course, there are a few lingering issues with support, but overall the trend is good: https://github.com/containers/podman/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%...
Of course, there's no Swarm support, as evidenced by that very article:
> One known caveat is that Podman has not and will not implement the Swarm function. Therefore, if your Docker Compose instance uses Swarm, it will not work with Podman.
Feels like people will either be pigeonholed into Kubernetes for all of their deployments, or will have to migrate over to something like Hashicorp Nomad: https://www.nomadproject.io/
Curiously, it also supports Podman as a task driver: https://www.nomadproject.io/docs/drivers/podman
Which tool do you use to run scripts?

I'm not sure I understand the situation here, but for something like running one-off / batch jobs across nodes, that sounds like something nomad should cover, or maybe Ansible depending on what you need.

why don't you consider nomad in your evaluations. i think it should fit your requirement.

In my experience, there are actually two platforms that do this pretty well.
First, there's Docker Swarm ( https://docs.docker.com/engine/swarm/ ) - it comes preinstalled with Docker, can handle either single machine deployments or clusters, even multi-master deployments. Furthermore, it just adds a few values to Docker Compose YAML format ( https://docs.docker.com/compose/compose-file/compose-file-v3... ) , so it's incredibly easy to launch containers with it. And there are lovely web interfaces, such as Portainer ( https://www.portainer.io/ ) or Swarmpit ( https://swarmpit.io/ ) for simpler management.
Secondly, there's also Hashicorp Nomad ( https://www.nomadproject.io/ ) - it's a single executable package, which allows similar setups to Docker Swarm, integrates nicely with service meshes like Consul ( https://www.consul.io/ ), and also allows non-containerized deployments to be managed, such as Java applications and others ( https://www.nomadproject.io/docs/drivers ). The only serious downsides is having to use the HCL DSL ( https://github.com/hashicorp/hcl ) and their web UI being read only in the last versions that i checked.
There are also some other tools, like CapRover ( https://caprover.com/ ) available, but many of those use Docker Swarm under the hood and i personally haven't used them. Of course, if you still want Kubernetes but implemented in a slightly simpler way, then there's also the Rancher K3s project ( https://k3s.io/ ) which packages the core of Kubernetes into a smaller executable and uses SQLite by default for storage, if i recall correctly. I've used it briefly and the resource usage was indeed far more reasonable than that of full Kubernetes clusters (like RKE).

The renders would take place inside of docker containers. I needed ffmpeg and packages like texlive-latex-extra for hiragana (ひらがな）and katakana (カタカナ). I got the entrypoint to accept a reference character along with my scene name and the batch processing came soon after. I noticed that in the time it'd take for a production render to complete, I could prepare the data for the next 2-5 episodes (and that only one CPU ever ran hot while the rest snoozed). So I started a nomad sandbox and used parameterized jobs execute 16 concurrent renders while I slept.
