Kubernetes All-In-One in 10 minutes

Posted by Maxime on April 2, 2018 in kubernetes

Kubespray is a set of Ansible playbooks to deploy a production ready Kubernetes cluster. But we can also use it for quick and easy test/dev Kubernetes clusters.

With Vagrant

The easiest way is to use Vagrant, simply download the Vagrantfile and run vagrant up.

git clone https://github.com/RootPi314/kubespray-aio.git
cd kubespray-aio
vagrant up

Cloud Init

If you prefer to run it with a cloud provider instead of running things locally simply pass the cloud-init.yml file as --user-data.

Do It Yourself & behind the Scene

Finally, if you want to get your hands dirty you’ll need an Ubuntu 16.04 server or VM, then run:

git clone git clone https://github.com/RootPi314/kubespray-aio.git
cd kubespray-aio

This should take around 10 minutes depending your computer and internet connection. After which kubectl get nodes will show you a ready cluster:

$ kubectl get nodes
NAME        STATUS    ROLES         AGE       VERSION
localhost   Ready     master,node   5m       v1.9.2+coreos.0
