# Operator Repository

The KUDO CLI comes with a built-in official repository of verified Operators. Every time you use the kudo install <operator> command, it pulls the specified package from this repository. The packages are mirrored from the KUDO Operators repository on GitHub.

# Layout

KUDO can work with any repository that conforms the expected structure and is exposed over HTTP. The official repository is hosted on Google Cloud Storage.

In the root of a repository we expect an index.yaml file similar to the following example:

apiVersion: v1
  - apiVersion: v1alpha1
    appVersion: 7.0.0
    name: youroperator
    - https://kudo-repository.storage.googleapis.com/elastic-0.1.0.tgz
    version: 0.1.0

The url points to a location where a tarball package is hosted. These locations can be within the repository, or outside of it.

# Managing Packages

As of now, all official packages are mirrored from the GitHub repository. To add new Operators, or to update an existing Operator, create a PR against that repository.
