A Django app to manage kubernetes clusters and objects.

Project description Maintainability Test Coverage DjangoKubernetesManager

Django Kubernetes Manager 0.4.7

Django Kubernetes Manager is an open source project to wrap the complexity of Kubernetes management in the simplicity of Django Rest Framework.


Our engineering team has developed several data processing apps, and found celery wasn’t quite enough for dispatching heavier tasks. We decided to try Kubernetes Jobs, and while pleased with performance, wanted a less verbose, more object oriented way to interact with our clusters.

And thus Django Kubernetes Manager was spawned. Using Django Rest Framework and the kubernetes client library, our devs came up with the idea to treat each object we’d be deploying as a Model instance, and use the DRF viewsets and actions to create an RESTful API framework from which we could extend for each projects particular needs.

    * Requires Postgresql or other database with JSON support.
  4. Start the development server and visit to configure a TargetCluster (you’ll need the Admin app enabled).
