- Setup a Kubernetes Cluster in version
1.13or later (if you plan to use Minikube, please see the notes below)
- Install kubectl in version
Install KUDO CLI
kubectl kudo plugin, To do so, please follow the CLI plugin installation instructions on a Mac it is as simple as:
$ brew tap kudobuilder/tap $ brew install kudo-cli
Install KUDO into your cluster
Once you have a running cluster with
kubectl installed along with the KUDO CLI plugin, you can install KUDO like so:
kubectl kudo init
If you want to manage the installation by hand the following is also possible:
kubectl kudo init --dry-run -o=yaml > kudo.yaml kubectl apply -f kudo.yaml
Deploy Your First Operator
Follow the instructions in the Apache Kafka example to deploy a Kafka cluster along with its dependency Zookeeper.
Create Your First Operator
To see the powers of KUDO unleashed in full, you should try creating your own operator.
Notes on Minikube
If you plan on developing and testing KUDO locally via Minikube, you'll need to launch your cluster with a reasonable amount of memory allocated. By default, Minikube runs with 2GB - we recommend at least 10GB, especially if you're working with applications such as Kafka. You can start Minikube with some suitable resource adjustments as follows:
minikube start --cpus=4 --memory=10240 --disk-size=40g
Notes on KIND
In order to use KIND with storage operators, it is necessary to modify its Persistent Storage (more details).
Here is an example of setting up a new cluster:
# create kind cluster kind create cluster export KUBECONFIG="$(kind get kubeconfig-path --name="kind")" kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kudobuilder/operators/master/test/manifests/local-path-storage.yaml
