Krew should support customizable index repositories.

This would allow users to distribute plugins without requiring them to make a pull request to the centralized index repo like "krew-index".

Similarly, this would allow vendors to distribute their plugins that are too specific or one-off to be in the centralized index repo.

Work here is probably:

  • Determine/propose a user experience journey
  • Propose a design
  • Implement CLI commands to tap/untap into other index repos
  • Refactor update/upgrade paths to keep taps in mind
  • Write user/developer documentation on working with custom repos.

@lbb has showed interest to work on this.

@ahmetb @juanvallejo @soltysh any update on this issue? any way to help? I'm excited to try this out for Airbnb but support for custom index repositories is likely a requirement for us.

@melaniecebula I've started a draft here to begin gathering thoughts on how to begin implementing this. Feel free to contribute or leave feedback on there

hey, wondering what the next steps are for pushing this forward?

we've been writing many kubectl plugins internally which are specific to our stack, and being able to distribute them with krew would be a huge improvement over the manual process we use now.
