Kotal is an open-source cloud-agnostic blockchain infrastructure deployer. Kotal extended Kubernetes with custom resources and controllers to make it super easy to deploy highly available, self-managing, self-healing blockchain infrastructure like networks, nodes and storage clusters.

I used kubebuilder, the kubernetes framework to create kubernetes controllers.
I extended kubernetes with custom resources like Ethereum Network and IPFS Swarm.
I wrote controllers in golang that created the required Network or Swarm as specified in the resouce specification.
I extended go-ipfs to start ipfs node with pre- generated private keys to make node discovery and networking easy.
