Corectl App for macOS

Corectl App is a macOS Status bar App which works like a wrapper around the corectl command line tool corectld to control the server runtime process.

Note: Corectl App only controls corectld server daemon, and is very, very, light on macOS system resources, when running and when idle. Also if there are no VMs running corectld server daemon is not using much resources too.

corectl allows to run CoreOS VMs on macOS using native macOS Hypervisor framework which eliminates any needs to use Virtual Box or any other similar virtualisation software.
