This is a plugin to enable Rancher 1.x as an OpenFaaS backend.
OpenFaaS is an event-driven serverless framework for containers. Any container for Windows or Linux can be leveraged as a serverless function. FaaS is quick and easy to deploy (less than 60 secs) and lets you avoid writing boiler-plate code.
If you'd like to know more about the OpenFaaS project head over to - https://www.openfaas.com/
The code in this repository is a daemon or micro-service which can provide the basic functionality the FaaS Gateway requires:
- List functions
- Deploy function
- Delete function
- Invoke function synchronously
Any other metrics or UI components will be maintained separately in the main FaaS project.
For now, this blog post shows how you can deploy OpenFaaS on Rancher via the Catalog.
