Kubernetes cluster orchestrator

Project description


More information about KQueen Architecture and use cases is described in RATIONALE file.


  • Bootstrap kqueen environment
mkvirtualenv -p /usr/bin/python3 kqueen
pip3 install -e ".[dev]"
pip3 install --editable .
# start etcd in container
docker-compose up -d # start
  • Clean etcd storage and prepare examples will create few objects to provides basic developer environment. It will also try to download kubeconfig file for real cluster but it requires access to Mirantis VPN. However, it can be workarounded by creating file kubeconfig_remote in repository root and this file will be used instead of downloading it.

etcdctl rm --recursive /kqueen

Demo environment

  • Without local Kubernetes
docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.demo.yml up
  • Including local Kubernetes (without kubelet)
docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.demo.yml -f docker-compose.kubernetes.yml up
  • You can add some example data by running
docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.demo.yml exec kqueen ./

It will add user admin with password default and few of testing objects.


We load configuration from file config/ by default and this can be configured by KQUEEN_CONFIG_FILE environment variable. Any environment variable matching name KQUEEN_* will be loaded and saved to configuration.
