dotmesh vs Skaffold: What are the differences?
dotmesh: Capture, organize, and share application states using a git-like CLI. Dotmesh captures snapshots from stateful Docker and Kubernetes applications as ’datadots‘, and gives you the ability to label, store and share them as you would with version-controlled code. Dotmesh is an open–source primitive that can be accessed via CLI or API; Skaffold: Easy and Repeatable Kubernetes Development. Skaffold is a command line tool that facilitates continuous development for Kubernetes applications. You can iterate on your application source code locally then deploy to local or remote Kubernetes clusters. Skaffold handles the workflow for building, pushing and deploying your application. It can also be used in an automated context such as a CI/CD pipeline to leverage the same workflow and tooling when moving applications to production.
dotmesh and Skaffold can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.
dotmesh and Skaffold are both open source tools. It seems that Skaffold with 7.16K GitHub stars and 589 forks on GitHub has more adoption than dotmesh with 472 GitHub stars and 17 GitHub forks.
