Simpler, Better, More awesome - Dennis Kliban
Pulp is a platform for managing repositories of software packages, but it can store any kind of binary data (e.g. cat photos). The core provides a REST API and manages files, but the real value for users is delivered by the plugins which allows core to manage a content type like a cat photo. The upcoming 3.0 release of Pulp includes a relational database, a new REST API, and a semantically versioned plugin API. This talk is going to briefly explain how Pulp is used, highlight the technologies under the hood, demonstrate the REST API, and show off the plugin API that will be included in Pulp 3.0.
