Hello.

It is hard to tell if given API will be final version, but i tried to make
it similar to CLI and its capabilities. So, why not?

What abou TOSCA? From my own perspective compose format is too limited, so
it is really necessary to consider regarding use of TOSCA in Higgins
workflows.

That's why i've started this thread, as community we have use cases for
Higgins itself and for compose but most of them are not formalized or even
written. Isn't this a good time to define them?

Well, compose allows to run detached executions for most of its API calls.
By use of events, we can track service/containers statuses (but it is not
really trivial).

Yes, agreed. But docker or swarm by itself doesn't provide such API (can't
tell the same for K8t).
