RKE: Cask or Core


(John Sockwell) #1

I’m looking to create a new formula for Rancher Kubernetes Engine.

GitHub repo: https://github.com/rancher/rke
Homepage: https://rancher.com/docs/rke/v0.1.x/en/

It is an open source CLI only application. However, its build process appears to be part of a CI/CD implementation and occurs inside a docker container which requires quite a bit of download bandwidth for the binary and required images.

This isn’t something I’ve come across before, and is a little over my head. Are there other formulas built this way I could reference? Would this be a good candidate for a Cask exception?

Since it does have a binary macOS release I’d probably make it a cask if I were to package it.
