Keel - automated Kubernetes deployments for the rest of us

Keel is a tool for automating Kubernetes deployment updates. Keel is stateless, robust and lightweight.

Keel provides several key features:

  • Kubernetes and Helm providers - Keel has direct integrations with Kubernetes and Helm.

  • No CLI/API - tired of f***ctl for everything? Keel doesn't have one. Gets job done through labels, annotations, charts.

  • Semver policies - specify update policy for each deployment/Helm release individually.

  • Automatic Google Container Registry configuration - Keel automatically sets up topic and subscriptions for your deployment images by periodically scanning your environment.

  • Native, DockerHub and Quay webhooks support - once webhook is received impacted deployments will be identified and updated.

  • Polling - when webhooks and pubsub aren't available - Keel can still be useful by checking Docker Registry for new tags (if current tag is semver) or same tag SHA digest change (ie: latest).

  • Notifications - out of the box Keel has Slack and standard webhook notifications, more info here

Before starting to work on some big or medium features - raise an issue here so we can coordinate our efforts.

Developing Keel

If you wish to work on Keel itself, you will need Go 1.8+ installed. Make sure you put Keel into correct Gopath and go build (dependency management is done through Glide).
