Kubernetes-native declarative infrastructure for AWS.
The Cluster API brings declarative, Kubernetes-style APIs to cluster creation, configuration and management.
The API itself is shared across multiple cloud providers allowing for true AWS hybrid deployments of Kubernetes. It is built atop the lessons learned from previous cluster managers such as kops and kubicorn.
Please see our book for in-depth documentation.
Check out the Cluster API Quick Start for launching a cluster on AWS.
This provider's versions are compatible with the following versions of Cluster API and support all Kubernetes versions that is supported by its compatible Cluster API version:
|Cluster API v1alpha3 (v0.3)||Cluster API v1alpha4 (v0.4)||Cluster API v1beta1 (v1.x)|
(See Kubernetes support matrix of Cluster API versions).
See amis for the list of most recently published AMIs.
clusterawsadm CLI tool provides bootstrapping, AMI, EKS, and controller related helpers.
clusterawsadm binaries are released with each release, can be found under assets section.
Are you interested in contributing to cluster-api-provider-aws? We, the maintainers and community, would love your suggestions, contributions, and help! Also, the maintainers can be contacted at any time to learn more about how to get involved.
In the interest of getting more new people involved we tag issues with
good first issue.
These are typically issues that have smaller scope but are good ways to start
to get acquainted with the codebase.
We also encourage ALL active community participants to act as if they are maintainers, even if you don't have "official" write permissions. This is a community effort, we are here to serve the Kubernetes community. If you have an active interest and you want to get involved, you have real power! Don't assume that the only people who can get things done around here are the "maintainers".
We also would love to add more "official" maintainers, so show us what you can do!
This repository uses the Kubernetes bots. See a full list of the commands here.
If you want to just build the CAPA containers locally, run
REGISTRY=docker.io/my-reg make docker-build
See development section for details
Maintainers hold office hours every two weeks, with sessions open to all developers working on this project.
Office hours are hosted on a zoom video chat every other Monday at 09:00 (Pacific) / 12:00 (Eastern) / 17:00 (Europe/London), and are published on the Kubernetes community meetings calendar.
Please check in with us in the #cluster-api-aws channel on Slack.
If you think you have found a bug please follow the instructions below.
We also use the issue tracker to track features. If you have an idea for a feature, or think you can help kops become even more awesome follow the steps below.
