Docker Compose is a tool for defining and running multi-container Docker applications. With Docker Compose, you can define an application’s services, networks, and volumes in a single file called a
docker-compose.yml file, and then start and stop the services with a single command.
Docker Compose allows you to define a specific environment for your application services, with isolated networks and volumes. It provides a single point of management for all your application services, making it easy to start, stop, or inspect the status of all your containers with a single command.
Overall, Docker Compose is a powerful tool that simplifies the process of defining and running multi-container applications. By using Docker Compose, you can focus on writing your application code, while Docker Compose takes care of the underlying infrastructure.
