Podman Desktop: Core Values
Podman Desktop is designed and built with the following core values in mind.
Fast and Light
Daemon-less and using the fastest technologies to make Podman Desktop fast to use.
Reactive and light on resources utilized from your environment.
While focusing on Podman as a container engine packaged by default, Podman Desktop also enables other container engines.
This gives the end-user a single tool to manage all their containers independently from the engine used.
Managing a container engine locally can be hard.
Running Kubernetes in a local environment requires knowledge.
Podman Desktop takes care of this complexity and enables developers to focus on their code.
Podman Desktop provides extensions points to enable the community to build more features.
This allows more in-deep integrations with other tools and technologies to extend workflows and capabilities of the tool.
Thus giving the developer a single tool to manage all their containers independently from the engine used.
