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


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.
