Set of helpers for creating kubectl commands, as well as kubectl plugins.


This library is a shared dependency for clients to work with Kubernetes API infrastructure which allows to maintain kubectl compatible behavior. Its first consumer is


There are NO compatibility guarantees for this repository. It is in direct support of Kubernetes, so branches will track Kubernetes and be compatible with that repo. As we more cleanly separate the layers, we will review the compatibility guarantee.
