Apache Camel K is a lightweight integration framework built from Apache Camel that runs natively on Kubernetes and is specifically designed for serverless and microservice architectures. Users of

Camel K
can instantly run integration code written in Camel DSL on their preferred Cloud provider.[How does it work?]

== :gear: Installation

Camel K allows you to run integrations directly on a

cluster. To use it, you need to be connected to a cloud environment or to a local cluster created for development purposes.[Installation procedure.]

== :arrow_forward: Running an Integration

You can use Camel DSL to define your

. Just save it in a file and use
command line interface ([download latest release]) to run it. As an example, just try running:



from('timer:tick?period=3000') .setBody().constant('Hello world from Camel K')


kamel run hello.groovy

You can even run your integrations in a

mode. Change the code and see the changes automatically applied (instantly) to the remote integration pod! We have provided link:/examples[more examples] that you can use to inspire your next
development.[See more details.]

== :camel: All the power from Apache Camel components

You can use any of the Apache Camel components available. The related dependencies will be resolved automatically.

Discover more about[dependencies and components].

== :coffee: Not Just Java

Camel K supports multiple languages for writing integrations.

See all the[languages available].

== :checkered_flag: Traits

The details of how the integration is mapped into Kubernetes resources can be customized using traits.

More information is provided in the official documentation[traits section].

== :cloud: Engineered thinking on Cloud Native

Since the inception of the project, our goal was to bring

Apache Camel
to the cloud.

See the[software architecture defails].
