Python client library for Kubernetes


Kel is an open source Platform as a Service (PaaS) from Eldarion, Inc. that makes it easy to manage web application deployment and hosting through the entire lifecycle from development through testing to production. It adds components and tools on top of Kubernetes that help developers manage their application infrastructure. Kel builds on Eldarion's 7+ years experience running one of the leading Python and Django PaaSes.
