Knative Eventing sources
Event Sources are Kubernetes Custom Resources which provide a mechanism for registering interest in a class of events from a particular software system. Since different event sources may be described by different Custom Resources, this page provides an index of the available source resource types as well as links to installation instructions.
This is a non-exhaustive list of Event sources for Knative.
Inclusion in this list is not an endorsement, nor does it imply any level of support.
These are sources that are installed as
|AWS SQS||Proof of Concept||None||Brings AWS Simple Queue Service messages into Knative.|
|Apache Camel||Proof of Concept||None||Allows to use Apache Camel components for pushing events into Knative.|
|Apache CouchDB||Active Development||None||Brings Apache CouchDB messages into Knative.|
|Apache Kafka||Proof of Concept||None||Brings Apache Kafka messages into Knative.|
|BitBucket||Proof of Concept||None||Registers for events of the specified types on the specified BitBucket organization/repository. Brings those events into Knative.|
