  • podman-desktop

    launch and setup vms for podman (by jedahan)

    I wrote this dumb little shell script to use multipass + podman to replace docker-desktop.

  • nerdctl

    contaiNERD CTL - Docker-compatible CLI for containerd, with support for Compose, Rootless, eStargz, OCIcrypt, IPFS, ... (by AkihiroSuda)

  • gvisor

    Application Kernel for Containers

    The main thing I'm missing with podman is gVisor support https://github.com/google/gvisor/issues/311 . Would be happy to switch once that is available!

  • lima

    Linux virtual machines, with a focus on running containers

  • arch-lwc

    🚛 Create & run lightweight Arch Linux containers

    I wrote a little tool to make creating and interacting with systemd-nspawn containers easier (on arch Linux only right now):

    https://github.com/b0o/arch-lwc

    Not intended for any sort of production. I personally use it to run Firefox inside a container and for testing.

  • podman

    Podman: A tool for managing OCI containers and pods.

    I installed Podman 3.3.1 on a Mac yesterday from Homebrew and volume mounts were definitely an issue, but it otherwise worked as advertised on the command-line.

    The bugs cited in the article are already fixed in the code, so I don't hold those against it.

    I did have an issue that was my fault, encountered one genuine bug, and was disappointed to find that there's some work to be done before third-party tools can use it as a Docker replacement:

    https://github.com/containers/podman/issues/11397

    I agree that Podman is not yet a complete replacement for Docker on macOS, but the experiment was successful enough for me that I intend to try Podman instead of Docker on Linux servers.

  • bottlerocket

    An operating system designed for hosting containers

    https://github.com/bottlerocket-os/bottlerocket

    I haven't used any of them, but maybe B.r. works with podman?
