Top 18 Go Containerd Projects

  • containerd

    An open and reliable container runtime

    Project mention: The Road To Kubernetes: How Older Technologies Add Up | dev.to | 2024-02-05

    Kubernetes on the backend used to utilize docker for much of its container runtime solutions. One of the modular features of Kubernetes is the ability to utilize a Container Runtime Interface or CRI. The problem was that Docker didn't really meet the spec properly and they had to maintain a shim to translate properly. Instead users could utilize the popular containerd or cri-o runtimes. These follow the Open Container Initiative or OCI's guidelines on container formats.

  • colima

    Container runtimes on macOS (and Linux) with minimal setup

    Project mention: Damn Small Linux 2024 | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-01

    You might look into CoLima as a way to get started.


    Its user interface is Docker-like, using containers.

    For full desktop, I've only used the commercial app "Parallels", which can set up an Ubuntu desktop for you. Also Fedora and Alpine and Debian I believe.


    > I don't really have any resources to share. I just know how to boot a vmlinuz with an initramfs using QEMU, and decided to download the Linux kernel source code and try compiling it.

    I highly recommend working through Linux from Scratch and possibly the Gentoo Handbook. It's a journey.

  • WorkOS

  • talos

    Talos Linux is a modern Linux distribution built for Kubernetes.

    Project mention: Google/Gvisor: Application Kernel for Containers | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-02

    Looks somewhat similar to the talos Linux project[1]

  • faasd

    A lightweight & portable faas engine

  • firecracker-containerd

    firecracker-containerd enables containerd to manage containers as Firecracker microVMs

    Project mention: Savings cost for self managed K8s? | /r/kubernetes | 2023-05-03

    My team is working on multi-cloud AWS Bottlerocket remix (Azure, GCP) with opt-in support for [firecracker-containerd](https://github.com/firecracker-microvm/firecracker-containerd) for our in-house CNCF distro, investigating microkernels applicability (tldr; they are not production-ready). We test kubernetes compat and migration plans for over 40+ cherry-picked solutions, and facing numerous compat issues for every k8s update. We do have support for Container Managed Control Planes described above, as well.

  • stargz-snapshotter

    Fast container image distribution plugin with lazy pulling

    Project mention: Show HN: depot.ai – easily embed ML / AI models in your Dockerfile | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-07-18

    To optimize build speed, cache hits, and registry storage, we're building each image reproducibly and indexing the contents with eStargz[0]. The image is stored on Cloudflare R2, and served via a Cloudflare Worker. Everything is open source[1]!

    Compared to alternatives like `git lfs clone` or downloading your model at runtime, embedding it with `COPY` produces layers that are cache-stable, with identical hash digests across rebuilds. This means they can be fully cached, even if your base image or source code changes.

    And for Docker builders that enable eStargz, copying single files from the image will download only the requested files. eStargz can be enabled in a variety of image builders[2], and we’ve enabled it by default on Depot[3].

    Here’s an announcement post with more details: https://depot.dev/blog/depot-ai.

    We’d love to hear any feedback you may have!
