Project Description

Iguana is an attempt to have 100% stable initramfs which functionality is enhanced by containers.

Iguana consists of different parts, iguana-workflow being one part of it.

Iguana-workflow is a rust project tasked by parsing special iguana workflow file and start containers based on it.

Goal for this Hackweek

With initramfs one of the goals is to have it as small as possible. Introducing container runtime to the Iguana made initrd big (about 110MB currently). Iguana completely bundles podman and podman takes about 40MB in the initrd.

Goal of this project is to refactor iguana-workflow to support different container frontends with goal to lower its overall size.

For example replacing podman with runc + skopeo should save 10MB in size.


Looking for hackers with the skills:
