Red Hat has stopped funding this OSS project! Feel free to fork it and maintain it if you like.
If you're looking for a kubernetes based FaaS we recommend you try use one of these open source alternatives:
Funktion is an open source event driven lambda style programming model on top of Kubernetes. This project provides a command line tool for working with
Funktion supports hundreds of different trigger endpoint URLs including most network protocols, transports, databases, messaging systems, social networks, cloud services and SaaS offerings.
In a sense funktion is a serverless approach to event driven microservices as you focus on just writing funktions and Kubernetes takes care of the rest. Its not that there's no servers; its more that you as the funktion developer don't have to worry about managing them.

You will need a recent install of
go along with
Then the first time you want to build you need to do this:
mkdir -p $GOHOME/src/github.com/funktionio cd $GOHOME/src/github.com/funktionio git clone https://github.com/funktionio/funktion.git cd funktion make bootstrap
Now whenever you want to do build you can just type
and you'll get a
./funktion binary you can play with
Running locally outside of docker
If you want to hack on the
operator its often easier to just run it locally on your laptop using your local build via
And scale down/delete the
funktion-operator thats running inside kubernetes.
Provided your machine can talk to your kubernetes cluster via:
kubectl get pod kubectl get node
funktion binary should be able to monitor and operate all your flows and functions.
