Cluster API

Please see our Book for more in-depth documentation.

What is the Cluster API?

The Cluster API is a Kubernetes project to bring declarative, Kubernetes-style APIs to cluster creation, configuration, and management. It provides optional, additive functionality on top of core Kubernetes.

NB: Cluster API is still in a prototype stage while we get feedback on the API types themselves. All of the code here is to experiment with the API and demo its abilities, in order to drive more technical feedback to the API design. Because of this, all of the codebase is rapidly changing.
