Here at OLX, we built rubiks, an open-sourced python DSL “compiler” to help us manage our kubernetes YAML. We currently manage over 700 objects in 63 namespaces across 3 clusters. When we first built this, the functionality of the compiler was pretty basic – meaning that we’d do more things repeatedly in the user-code. We talk about how the feature-set evolved, and where we’ve improved the features to make readability and ease of writing better, and the twists and turns getting it wrong. We also talk about why we thought that building our own was a good idea, and how we hope we’re right.

(the title is both bits – as in Dr Strangelove or: How I Learnt To Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb)
