Five Docker Extensions to simplify your development experience

Docker Extensions are fairly new to the tech domain, and many people haven't explored this. I thought this would be a great opportunity to take the mic and share the word about Docker Extensions and some of them which I like and use.

But first, what is Docker Extension or Docker Desktop extensions.

Docker Extensions are like superpowers for Docker Desktop, letting you do more cool stuff. Here, we'll check out five awesome extensions that can level up your development game.

1) Livecycle Extension


Imagine you're working on a project, and you want your team to see what you've done. The Livecycle extension is like a magic button that lets you instantly share your work with your team. Quick feedback and easy collaboration make your development journey smoother.

Managing Docker containers can be a bit tricky, especially when there are many of them. It helps you manage all of them from a single place, not only Docker containers but also Kubernetes clusters and much more.
