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

Updating

The current version of Crane can be retrieved with the version command. At the same time, this command checks for updates unless the --no-check flag is passed.

In addition, Crane automatically checks for updates once a week. Only anonymous information, which cannot be used to identify the user or host, is sent to the endpoint https://www.crane-orchestration.com/update-checks. The full source code of the client code is available for inspection on GitHub.

Information about new versions, when to check again and the anonymous UUID are stored in a settings file which is created the first time Crane is used. This config.json file is located at %APPDATA%\\crane on Windows systems and at $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/crane (which typically is $HOME/.config/crane) on Unix systems. You can choose a different folder by setting the environment variable CRANE_SETTINGS_PATH.

If you want to disable update checking completely, the settings file allows you to do so by changing "check_for_updates": true to "check_for_updates": false.
