Subject Re: Proposing Ballerina Runtime for OpenWhisk
Date Tue, 03 Jul 2018 16:45:47 GMT
Thank you Malith for introducing Ballerina to OpenWhisk.

We have received in the past contributions to add PHP (thanks @akrabat
<>), Go
<> (thanks
@sciabarracom <>) Ruby (#3725
<> thanks @remore
<>) so far but have not documented the steps
required to add a new runtime so that it is available to the OpenWhisk
deployment. I've taken this opportunity to create a first draft after
working through to reduce the touch-points needed to integrate the runtime
with OpenWhisk in recent weeks.

Comments  are appreciated and welcome particularly from those who have
contributed runtimes in the past.

I think there are some more things we can do to reduce the steps needed as
noted in the markdown. I'd like to make sure I covered the big steps first.
