Captain is a Helm 3 Controller
The Helm 3 Design Proposal exists for a while and currently it is still under heavy development. Captain comes as the first implementation of Helm v3 Controller based on the Proposal.
This project is based on the core helm v3 code, acting as a library. Since it's not officially released yet (alpha stage for now), some modifications were made to help implement this controller on a fork: alauda/helm (will be deprecated once Helm's library is released).
