    A tool for exploring each layer in a docker image

    I really like the dive tool for exploring images and seeing where you can trim space.

  • GitHub repo distroless

    DockerSlim (docker-slim): Don't change anything in your Docker container image and minify it by up to 30x (and for compiled languages even more) making it secure too! (free and open source)

    That's incredibly small. I don't know how you'll be able to do this for your projects without heavily leveraging docker-slim: https://github.com/docker-slim/docker-slim
