Use fig and docker-machine to deploy remotely
I use docker-machine to easily create docker hosts on AWS.
Locally I use fig (or docker-compose) to start the various microservices associated with a service.
Is it possible for fig to use the config variables set by the docker-machine command:
docker-machine config host
So when I do:
Fig creates the service on the host set by docker-machine and not the local one?

I haven’t tried to do this with a remote host but I have it working with a
vmwarefusion based machine. Because fig respects some of the
DOCKER_ environment variables you can modify them to point to your docker host. Try something like this:
$(docker-machine env host); docker-compose up
Edited previous approach (referenced in comments):
#!/bin/bash # modify path and host with output from > docker-machine config host DOCKER_CERT_PATH=~/.docker/machines/.client/ DOCKER_HOST=tcp://172.16.124.216:2376 DOCKER_TLS_VERIFY=1 fig up
