I’ve read a lot about graph theory recently. They have changed the world a lot. From the simple representation to Bayesian network via Markov chains, the applications are numerous. Today I would like to imagine a graph as a workflow of execution. Every node would be considered as runnable. And every edge would be a dependency. It is an important framework that may be used to as an orchestrator for any model, and of course I am a lot thinkingabout TOSCA
From time to time, I’m involved into a trolling conversation when any linux kiddie tells me: Bash is really the superior shell I totally disagree, but as I’m getting older, I don’t argue anymore. Anyway, in this post I will expose two arguments, or I should say two reasons, why I usually use ksh93 to run my scripts. Note I’m really talking about the engine of the script, (the shebang definition).
About TOSCA The TOSCA acronym stands for Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications. It’s an OASIS standard. The purpose of the TOSCA project is to represent an application by its topology and formalize it using the TOSCA grammar. The [TOSCA-Simple-Profile-YAML-v1.0] current specification in YAML introduces the following concepts. TOSCA YAML service template: A YAML document artifact containing a (TOSCA) service template that represents a Cloud application. TOSCA processor: An engine or tool that is capable of parsing and interpreting a TOSCA YAML service template for a particular purpose.
