Lightweight Python module for creating, manipulating, and editing kubeconfig files

Project description


Lightweight Python module for creating, manipulating, and editing kubeconfig files

Why not use or wrap kubectl config? kubectl config is great and writing a Python wrapper is a fine solution. However, kubectl config is quite limited in functionality. I wanted more control over my kubernetes config. kubeconfig gives me that control. It doesn't use kubectl at all. Rather, it reads, edits, and writes config files entirely on its own.

Getting starting

Install this package using pip:

pip install kubeconf

Basic Usage

from kubeconf import KubeConf

k = KubeConf(path='path/to/config')

# Open the file

# Add a cluster

# Add a user for that cluster

# Add a context to map the user to the cluster

# Commit change to the file.


Download and install this repo from source, and move into the base directory.

git clone
cd kubeconf

If you use pipenv, you can install a developement version:

pipenv install --dev

Otherwise you can install a development version using pip

pip install -e .
