    • yac does the same for services
  • A cli app that lets you easily find, run, define, and share web service templates

    • yac registry works just like the docker registry
    • services are defined as templates in json
    • services templates can be browsed, instantiated, registered, and cloned via the yac registry
  • A happy place for service developers, cloud administrators, and service providers

What is a service?
