Design choices for a declarative installer
At Banzai Cloud we write Kubernetes tools that, no surprise, require other tools to get installed. These tools handle resource lifecycle operations like the installation, upgrade, and removal of various components that need to be integrated together. Kubernetes Operators solve all these and even more for a given application’s domain, but if the focus is simply on installation, upgrade and removal of a set of components - which are in our case operators themselves (operating operators), then we need a tool with different characteristics at hand.
