  • GitHub repo Dokku

    Project mention: Why use DigitalOcean over Netlify/Heroku? | | 2022-01-12

    I use dokku for a heroku-like experience. I am in love with it.

  • GitHub repo containers-roadmap

    This is the public roadmap for AWS container services (ECS, ECR, Fargate, and EKS).

    Project mention: Cross-VPC Deployment | | 2021-12-26

    This is pretty much the scenario you describe But I'd say it's not supported by EKS right now. EKS is a bit opinionated product (same as GKE or AKS) so it does not support all the scenarios that are possible from the networking point of view.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo netshoot

  • GitHub repo vscode-dev-containers

    A repository of development container definitions for the VS Code Remote - Containers extension and GitHub Codespaces

    Project mention: Web API – Dev environment in 120 seconds | | 2021-10-02

    Before we get too far ahead, let’s codify the bits we already know. We start VS Code and browse through a catalog of available dev containers… This time round we needed to set up and orchestrate at least two: we’ve got our app as well as Hoppscotch sitting in the same virtual network. That led us to opt for docker-from-docker-compose container template. On top of that, we enhanced it with dotnet SDK installation like our AWS Lambda container.

    Project mention: Real-world stories of how we’ve compromised CI/CD pipelines | | 2022-01-17

    We’ve been using Sysbox ( for our Buildkite based CI/CD setup, allows docker-in-docker without privileged containers. Paired with careful IAM/STS design we’ve ended up with isolated job containers with their own IAM roles limited to least-privilege.

    If you want start with jails I would recommend Bastille which automates a lot of things with jails and makes it super easy: In the newest version there are also Linux containers included but I still didn't tried them so I can't say if they work fine.

    The K3d action for vscode might be useful also.

  • GitHub repo docker-vackup

    Script to easily backup and restore docker volumes

    Project mention: Accidentally "reset to factory defaults", now my databases are gone? | | 2021-08-26

    Look at using something like vackup occasionally to backup volumes. Or occasionally run application level backups (mysqldump, pg_dump) that get stored to some location outside docker.
