[DEPRECATED] Helm App Operator Kit
This project is deprecated. Its functionality has been integrated into the Operator SDK as of v0.3.0. To get started developing a Helm operator with the SDK, see the Helm operator user guide.
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.
Clone the project
mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/github.com/operator-framework cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/operator-framework git clone https://github.com/operator-framework/helm-app-operator-kit cd helm-app-operator-kit
See the helm-app-operator subdirectory for more details about how to build and deploy a custom operator with Helm App Operator Kit or follow along with a simple tomcat-operator example.
