Docker Can Be Heavy

Over time the containers tend to proliferate, while our laptop’s RAM and CPU are fixed. Development gets slower and slower before it eventually grinds to a halt. With Blimp, access an infinite pool of resources to speed up your development.

Docker Compose in the Cloud

Make your day to day development process less heavy by running containers in the cloud. Blimp is a drop-in replacement for Docker Compose that speeds up traditional local development by going remote.

What people are saying about us


“Blimp feels like magic. Starting my local environment used to take 15 minutes just for me to see it fail. Now, it loads up in 2-3 minutes, and works every single time.”

John Chen, Software engineer at Kustomer


“I knew I wanted my team’s development environment in the cloud — Blimp let me achieve that without building any custom tooling. I can now keep my dev env up and running even when I’m not working, so I can jump right in whenever I’m ready to code.”

Bryan Stevenson, Co-founder of Reprise

For development

Docker in Development

It doesn’t matter what you use in production, as long as you use Docker Compose for local development, Blimp can fit right into your existing setup. No need to learn a new tool, write new configuration files, or change your workflow.

Instant Setup

Blimp is easy to set up and fits seamlessly with your existing workflow. Use localhost to access your containers, and mount host volumes just as you would with Docker Compose.


# Install the Blimp CLI

curl -fsSL '' | sh

# Create your Blimp account

blimp login
