Right now portusctl is a tool which is embedded into the Portus source code. This was done out of simplicity and with the hope that we would share as much code as possible with Portus itself. However:

  • portusctl got bigger and bigger, and it starts to look like a good candidate for getting it in another repository.
  • Code sharing never happened and it probably won't happen because they are tackling two entirely different things.
  • The tool is evolving to something entirely different: with the containerized setup and the REST API, portusctl should be more of an API consumer instead of the tool it is now.

So, I've decided to re-write portusctl from scratch using Go. Generally speaking it will have:

  • An interface heavily inspired by kubectl in which a user will be able to talk to the REST API.
  • Some commands like exec which have proven to be useful, for cases in which portusctl and Portus reside on the same host/container.

If I'm successful at bootstrapping this project, then I'll release it as GPLv3 and try to push it into openSUSE's Github account.
