Add sysutils/cloudabi-utils.

Authored by ed on Jul 13 2015, 12:23 PM.



Though CloudABI programs can simply be started from the command line
like any UNIX process, the preferred way for starting them is using the
cloudabi-run utility.

cloudabi-run parses a YAML file that contains the configuration for the
program that you want to run. Special tags can be used in the YAML file
to indicate that the program depends on a resources (a socket or a
file). cloudabi-run then attempts to obtain these resources and startes
the program for you.

The end result is that it's possible to build software that looks like
traditional UNIX software (executable + config file), but still gets run
in this completely sandboxed environment.
