  • distroless

    🥑 Language focused docker images, minus the operating system.

    Base your images on smaller size images. You can use distribution such as the alpine Linux or Google’s distroless.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • dive

    A tool for exploring each layer in a docker image

    One last thing before wrapping this guide, I would like to recommend an open-source utility named Dive. Among its many features, you can explore each layer's content, file sizes, and more. Basically, It helps you analyze docker images. Eventually, providing enough info to think of ways to reduce image sizes.
