(README.md) # flynn-controller This is the Flynn Controller. It is inspired by the [Heroku Platform API](https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/platform-api-reference) and enables management of applications running on Flynn via an HTTP API. The controller depends on PostgreSQL and is typically booted by [flynn-bootstrap](https://github.com/flynn/flynn-bootstrap). The API is in a state of flux and is undocumented. [flynn-cli](https://github.com/flynn/flynn-cli) is one of the API consumers. ## Flynn [Flynn](https://flynn.io) is a modular, open source Platform as a Service (PaaS). If you're new to Flynn, start [here](https://github.com/flynn/flynn). ### Status Flynn is in active development and **currently unsuitable for production** use. Users are encouraged to experiment with Flynn but should assume there are stability, security, and performance weaknesses throughout the project. This warning will be removed when Flynn is ready for production use. Please report bugs as issues on the appropriate repository. If you have a general question or don't know which repo to use, report them [here](https://github.com/flynn/flynn/issues). ## Contributing We welcome and encourage community contributions to Flynn.
