Project Description

Create a lightweight virtual machine manager for a container runtime on Mac.

There are lots of container runtime options for Mac users, but they can be slow to start and resource intensive. This project is intended as a learning experience for working with the Mac platform and the virtualization framework in particular, programming with swift, and understanding the elements of existing container platforms on Mac.
