Two feature requests for Compose: integration into the CLI and a registry

(Raj Chaudhuri) #1
  1. Compose integration into CLI
    I envision a docker compose command, which does what the separate docker-compose tool does today. Of course, this should be executed by the CLI, not the daemon.
    Doing this will remove the need to separately download and install docker-compose, and may allow us to have a uniform way of composing services in standalone and swarm mode (more so than it is today).

  2. A Compose registry
    Like Helm in the Kubernetes world, a registry for compose files will allow people to publish, pull and use fully composed applications. We can already do this by, for example, using a github repository. But having a dedicated registry, with documentation, search and perhaps dependency tracking would be good.
