+= Honeycomb
+
+Honeycomb is an VPP agent that runs the same host as a VPP instance
+and exposes YANG models via NETCONF and RESTCONF to allow management of that VPP instance.
+Honeycomb uses jAPI to communicate with the VPP.

+
+== NETCONF/RESTCONF layer
+
+NETCONF and RESTCONF support is provided by ODL (Honeycomb is an ODL application).
+In the future we plan to minimize ODL dependencies or completely remove karaf.
+
+Transaction functionality is provided by the data layer.
+
+== Data layer
+
+Models CONFIG data store as a DataTree.
+
+OPERATIONAL data store reads are passed directly to the translation layer.
+
+Provides transaction functionality for NETCONF/RESTCONF layer.
+
+
+== Translation layer
+
+Extensible API for translation between Binding Aware data and actual device data.
+Consists of readers and writers responsible for communication with the device.
+
+Provides registry of readers and writers for the data layer.
+
+== Supported features
+
+List of supported requests for RESTCONF northbound interface can be found in
+postman_rest_collection.json within the codebase.
+It is a POSTMAN compatible collection and can be imported into POSTMAN application.
