Flocker vs Kitematic: What are the differences?
Developers describe Flocker as "Run your databases in Docker and make them as portable as the rest of your app". Flocker is a data volume manager and multi-host Docker cluster management tool. With it you can control your data using the same tools you use for your stateless applications. This means that you can run your databases, queues and key-value stores in Docker and move them around as easily as the rest of your app. On the other hand, Kitematic is detailed as "The easiest way to start using Docker on your Mac". Simple Docker App management for Mac OS X.
Flocker and Kitematic can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.
"Open-Source" is the primary reason why developers consider Flocker over the competitors, whereas "I like it because it sucks" was stated as the key factor in picking Kitematic.
Flocker and Kitematic are both open source tools. It seems that Kitematic with 10.5K GitHub stars and 1.26K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Flocker with 3.19K GitHub stars and 287 GitHub forks.
