Release 0.10.0

Charmcraft supports Kubernetes operator development.

This new release includes the following changes:

  • Support for oci-image resources.
  • Improvements to the init command, among others: links to docs, more robust base project, better docstrings and comments.
  • Alert if not included in a packed bundle (as it is required for deploying).
  • Produce a manifest.yaml with the building context of the charm or bundle.
  • Fix the handling of charms with dashes in the name when dealing with libraries.

Charmcraft enables collaboration between operator developers, and publication on Charmhub 1, home of the Open Operator Collection.

Use charmcraft to:

  • Init a new charm file structure
  • Build your operator into a charm for distribution
  • Register your charm name on Charmhub
  • Upload your charms to Charmhub
  • Release your charms into channels
  • Publish and fetch charm libraries

You can use charmcraft with operators written in any language but we recommend the Python Operator Framework on Github which is also on PyPI 1 for ease of development and collaboration.

Charmcraft and the Python Operator Framework extend the operator pattern beyond Kubernetes with universal operators that drive Linux and Windows apps. The universal operator pattern is very exciting for multi-cloud application management.

Happy charming!
