What is Pot

pot (pkg install pot) is a FreeBSD jail management tool developed mainly by Luca Pizzamiglio.

What makes it stand out is the possibility to use it for service orchestration, not unlike Docker can be used with tools like Kubernetes on Linux.

To learn more about pot itself, go to github.com/pizzamig/pot and pot.pizzamig.dev.

To learn how you can use nomad and consul together with pot, see the FOSDEM 2020 presentation.

Also, pot supports DevOps style creation of jails from “flavours” as well as exporting jails into images that can be imported again on other systems.

This site aims to be the repository for flavours & images for pot.
