  • Why helm doesn't use a general purpose programming language for defining resources?

    Not Helm directly, but does something like Dhall fit your question? https://github.com/dhall-lang/dhall-kubernetes
  • Dhall configuration language as another way to write manifests for Kubernetes

    Have you heard about Dhall? It’s a programming language used for generating configuration files for a variety of purposes. One of them is to replace old and limited formats such as JSON and YAML. It is DRYable, secure, and even suitable for creating K8s manifests. The latter option isn’t something for anyone: you have to learn a new language and deal with its peculiarities, but it might be really helpful when you have tons of YAML configs. I’ve recently made a short intro to Dhall for K8s in this review.

    Best thing is Dhall that I am aware of. Same situation, working as a consultant, forced to use broken things.

    Lets look at a specific example. Take Kubernetes: everything is yaml, with complete schemas, all the way down. From your perspective this is configuration utopia, right? Meanwhile back in reality k8s is the poster child of "yaml hell". From the day it was released, people took one look at it, gave it a giant NOPE and instantly spawned half a dozen templating languages. The most popular of these is helm, which has a terrible, no good, very bad design: full of potential injection attacks from purely textual string substitution, manually specified indentation to embed parameterized blocks, virtually no intermediate validation, no way to validate unused features, etc etc

    Compare to dhall which publishes a complete set of dhall-k8s schema mappings which enables you to factor out any design you want down to as few configuration variables as you like, while validating the configuration generators themselves at design time. https://github.com/dhall-lang/dhall-kubernetes#more-modular-...

  • INTERCAL, YAML, And Other Horrible Programming Languages

    The solution I like is Dhall. They even have a Kubernetes solution that will catch a lot of issues at compile-time, before you try to apply it to Kubernetes. At earthly we aren't actually using it though. Our Kubernetes guru found it to be a bit slow but I am hopeful it or something like it will be the future.
