Discord License GitHub release (latest SemVer) Twitter Follow

mirrord lets developers run local processes in the context of their cloud environment. Its meant to provide the benefits of running your service on a cloud environment (e.g. staging) without actually going through the hassle of deploying it there, and without disrupting the environment by deploying untested code. It comes as a Visual Studio Code extension, an IntelliJ plugin and a CLI tool. You can read more about it here.


Getting Started

mirrord uses your machine's default kubeconfig for access to the Kubernetes API.

VS Code Extension


Get the extension here.

How To Use

  • Click "Enable mirrord" on the status bar
  • Start debugging your project
  • Choose pod to impersonate
  • The debugged process will be plugged into the selected pod by mirrord

IntelliJ Plugin


Get the plugin here.

How To Use

  • Click the mirrord icon in the Navigation Toolbar
  • Start debugging your project
  • Choose a namespace and pod to impersonate
  • The debugged process will be plugged into the selected pod by mirrord

CLI Tool


You can use either

brew install metalbear-co/mirrord/mirrord


curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/metalbear-co/mirrord/main/scripts/install.sh | bash
  • Windows isn't currently supported (you can use WSL)

How To Use

mirrord exec <process command> --target <target-path>


mirrord exec node app.js --target pod/my-pod

How It Works

When you select a pod to impersonate, mirrord launches a privileged pod on the same node as the pod you selected. The new pod is then used to connect your local process and the impersonated pod: it mirrors incoming traffic from the pod to your process, routes outgoing traffic from your process through the pod, and does the same for file reads, file writes, and environment variables. You can read more about it here.
