Charm SDK Documentation

The Charm SDK documentation presupposes familiarity with Juju.

The Charm SDK is a toolkit for building charms.

The SDK provides a Python library for developing and testing charms, ops, and a CLI tool for building, packaging and publishing charms, charmcraft.

A charm can be developed in a variety of ways. However, the SDK provides useful abstractions and CLI commands so you can develop and share your charm better and faster.

Whether you are a charm developer or a charm end user, with the Charm SDK you get a smoother experience.

For a collection of existing charms, see Charmhub. To deploy and manage an existing or new charm, see Juju docs.
