This section describes the developer-specific DC/OS components, explaining what is necessary to package and provide your own service on DC/OS.
The Mesosphere Distributed Cloud Operating System (DC/OS) provides the optimal user experience possible for orchestrating and managing a datacenter. If you are an Apache Mesos developer, you are already familiar with developing a framework. DC/OS extends Apache Mesos by including a web interface for health checks and monitoring, a command-line, a service packaging description, and a repository that catalogs those packages.
The DC/OS Universe contains all of the services that are installable on DC/OS. For more information on DC/OS Universe, see the GitHub Universe repository. Our general recommendation is to use the DC/OS CLI rather than the DC/OS web interface throughout the process of creating a package for the Universe.
All packaged services are required to meet a certain standard as defined by Mesosphere. For details on submitting a DC/OS service, see Getting Started with Universe.
DC/OS service structure
Each DC/OS service in the Universe repo is comprised of JSON configuration files. These files are used create the packages that are installed on DC/OS.
