Framework for replacing Kubernetes YAML with Go
+ 1

What is Naml?

It is a framework for infrastructure teams who need more than just conditional manifests. It allows teams to start encapsulating, managing, and testing their applications in raw Go. Teams can now buid controllers, operators, and custom toolchains using reliable, testable, and scalable Go.
Naml is a tool in the Container Tools category of a tech stack.
Naml is an open source tool with 870 GitHub stars and 23 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Naml's open source repository on GitHub

Naml Integrations

Naml's Features

  • Express applications in Go instead of YAML
  • Use the Go compiler to check your syntax
  • Write real tests using Go to check and validate your deployments
  • Test your applications in Kubernetes using kind
  • Define custom installation logic. What happens if it fails?
  • Define custom application registries. Multiple apps of the same flavor? No problem
  • Use the latest client (the same client the rest of Kubernetes uses)

Naml Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Naml?
Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
Docker Compose
With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.
Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
Docker Swarm
Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
