Kubernetes Certificate Manager
This project is loosely based on https://github.com/kelseyhightower/kube-cert-manager It took over most of its documentation, license, as well as the general approach to how things work.
The code itself however, was entirely reimplemented to use xenolf/lego as the basis, instead of reimplementing an ACME client and DNS plugins.
Please note: This is the documentation for the currently in development version of kcm, please refer to v0.4.0 for documentation for the latest stable version
