AWS Announces Finch, an Open Source Container-Building Tool

AWS has announced Finch, an open source, command-line client for building, running, and publishing Linux containers. 

According to the announcement, Finch “provides for simple installation of a native macOS client, along with a curated set of de facto standard open source components including Lima, nerdctl, containerd, and BuildKit. With Finch, you can create and run containers locally, and build and publish Open Container Initiative (OCI) container images.”

At this point, Finch has basic functionality, supporting macOS (on all Mac CPU architectures). However, the developers say they want “to expand Finch from its current basic starting point to cover Windows and Linux platforms and additional functionality.”
