One of the tools we use internally at Squadcast for SLO and Error Budget tracking is now open-source. In keeping up with the SRE ideology of automating as many ops tasks as possible, we built this SLO Tracker. We made this open-source so that the SRE community can also use it too. Looking forward to get your feedback, suggestions and patches :)
