Tool for exploring Docker layers.

Our review

What we like

Ever got stuck with constructing a mental representation of what’s happening with COPY in your Dockerfile? Terminal interface allows exploration of each image layer. Diff changes by layer. Integrate into CI to provide efficiency stats for image builds. Configurable UI with keybindings. Single binary.

What we don't like

Can’t distinguish between different architectures when examining a multi-arch image. Would be useful to be able to hide base image layers.
