Compose vs Composer: What are the differences?

Compose: We host databases for busy devs: production-ready, cloud-hosted, open source. Compose makes it easy to spin up multiple open source databases with just one click. Deploy MongoDB for production, take Redis out for a performance test drive, or spin up RethinkDB in development before rolling it out to production; Composer: Dependency Manager for PHP. Composer is a tool for dependency management in PHP. It allows you to declare the libraries your project depends on and it will manage (install/update) them for you.

Compose and Composer are primarily classified as "MongoDB Hosting" and "Package Managers" tools respectively.

"Simple to set up" is the primary reason why developers consider Compose over the competitors, whereas "Must have dependency manager for PHP" was stated as the key factor in picking Composer.

Composer is an open source tool with 20.2K GitHub stars and 5.54K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Composer's open source repository on GitHub.

Walls.io, Zumba, and Infoshare are some of the popular companies that use Composer, whereas Compose is used by Accenture, Artsy, and FashionUnited. Composer has a broader approval, being mentioned in 95 company stacks & 55 developers stacks; compared to Compose, which is listed in 82 company stacks and 19 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Compose and Composer?
Docker Compose
With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
Docker
The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere
Kubernetes
Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
Docker Swarm
Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
Elementor
