Local Docker-powered development environments



Substance combines a virtual machine and docker into one self contained tool. Complex projects can be distributed with a .substance folder which defines all the environmental details in one so you can spend more time developing and less time setting up servers.


Substance is backed by Virtual Box, the docker engine and dockwrkr to compose containers. With substance you create an engine which runs it's own virtual machine with the docker daemon and synchronizes a devroot folder with your project source code to the engine. Substance then allows you to switch from project to project simply by having a simple .substance folder in the root of your project source to define the containers and folders/volumes needed to run your project.


  • Python 3.x
