Editor’s picks of the highlights from the past week.
rkt project archived
Chris Aniszczyk, CNCF
The CNCF Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) voted to archive the rkt project. All open source projects are subject to a lifecycle and can become less active for a number of reasons. In rkt’s case, despite its initial popularity following its creation in December 2014, and contribution to CNCF in March 2017, end user adoption has declined. The CNCF is also home to other container runtime projects: containerd and CRI-O, and while the rkt project played an important part in the early days of cloud native adoption, in recent times user adoption has trended away from rkt towards these other projects.
Despite the author’s disclaimer “The article is highly opinionated and the author is a total newbie to the topic”, the editor’s feel this is a good resource.
“What I’m trying to achieve in this ongoing effort is to guide myself starting from the lowest layers to the topmost ones, having as much practice (code, installation, configuration, integration, etc) and, of course, fun as possible. The content of this page is going to be changing over time, reflecting my understanding of the topic.”
