Docker

Docker is an awesome tool for developers. It makes it easy to share the exact same configuration with the world. If you pack an application in a Docker container, it’ll run on any system independent of the underlying OS.

Most of the tools listed on SamAuto run on Docker and we’ve made it easy to deploy the whole stack using Docker compose.
