Helm App Operator Kit

This project is a component of the Operator Framework, an open source toolkit to manage Kubernetes native applications, called Operators, in an effective, automated, and scalable way. Read more in the introduction blog post.

This repository serves as a template for easily creating managed stateless applications that run Helm charts. It was inspired by the Lostromos project. The underlying Operator was created using the operator-sdk new command.

While the Operator Lifecycle Manager can only manage Operators, not all applications require developers to write a custom Operator. The Helm App Operator Kit makes it possible to leverage a pre-existing Helm chart to deploy Kubernetes resources as a unified application.
