Short Description
Transform docker-compose configs to ECS
Full Description


container-transform is a small utility to transform various docker container
formats to one another.

Currently, container-transform can parse and convert ECS task definitions and
docker-compose configuration files. Any missing required parameters are
printed to STDERR.
