Exploring CRDs in CF

Zach Robinson

Hey all,

As we move towards a kubernetes-based Cloud Foundry, the inclusion of CRDs into CF has been a recurring topic. At this point we already see CRDs being incorporated into CF in a number of ways, as well as questions about them such as a thread on this list titled "Is anyone working on a CF CRD & Controller?".  

We would like to use this space to start gathering an understanding of how folks are using CRDs, the reasons folks are using CRDs, and what CRDs folks would like to see in the future. 

This will help us build a better understanding as a community towards the outcomes of
  • Include CRDs in CF with well-defined architectural patterns
  • Understand how CRDs should be exposed as a user interface

This document has been created to help house the discussion asynchronously. It has been built with the understanding of cf contributors from a couple of teams, but we need everybody's help to flesh out the full picture.

Looking forward to discussion
