K-Rule: evolution of a framework for event-driven solutions toward a cloud-native paradigm shift

K-Rule was conceived as a flexible and fast way to develop applications that could extend, integrate and structure solutions that connect intelligently and real-time the data from a different context and sources. Initially, we develop it in order to manage complex workflows, automating actions and decisions, in a real-time environment. We envisioned a programming paradigm that focuses on context awareness and rules (conditions and actions). In order to ensure scalability and keep the focus on solutions, we started an evolution toward a complete cloud-native solution. KRules today is based on Kubernetes and Knative. A rule is part of a rules-set and each rules-set reside in a container, receiving contextual messages. Its uniqueness lies in the “glue” that can connect all components together in a reactive and context-aware logic.
