Hermod takes its name from the Norse messenger of the gods.
It tracks deployments as they roll out and posts useful status updates into Slack. It does this by watching the Kubernetes api for namespaces and deployments with the correct annotations. When a new deployment rollout begins and completes updates are posted to the Slack API. Any errors during the deployment rollout are captured and included in the Slack message (see example below). This can be very useful to help quickly debug a failing deployment.
