Crane is a Docker orchestration tool similar to Docker Compose
with extra features and ultra-fast bind-mounts on Mac.

Prefixing

By default, services, networks and volumes are prefixed with the project folder (the folder where the configuration file is located).

However, it is also possible to set a different prefix via the global CLI --prefix flag (or CRANE_PREFIX environment variable). The specified prefix is simply appended without any modification. A common use case for this feature is to launch a set of services in parallel, e.g. for CI builds.

Another option is to set a permanent prefix in the configuration itself. This can be done via the top-level setting prefix: "foo". It is also possible to disable prefixing altogether with prefix: false.
