This document is intended to be the canonical source of truth for things like supported toolchain versions for building Kubed. If you find a requirement that this doc does not capture, please submit an issue on github.
This document is intended to be relative to the branch in which it is found. It is guaranteed that requirements will change over time for the development branch, but release branches of Kubed should not change.
Some of the Kubed development helper scripts rely on a fairly up-to-date GNU tools environment, so most recent Linux distros should work just fine out-of-the-box.
Kubed is written in Google’s GO programming language. Currently, Kubed is developed and tested on go 1.8.3. If you haven’t set up a GO development environment, please follow these instructions to install GO.
$ go get github.com/appscode/kubed $ cd $(go env GOPATH)/src/github.com/appscode/kubed
Install Dev tools
To install various dev tools for Kubed, run the following command:
$ ./hack/make.py $ kubed version
$ kubed run \ --secure-port=8443 \ --kubeconfig="$HOME/.kube/config" \ --authorization-kubeconfig="$HOME/.kube/config" \ --authentication-kubeconfig="$HOME/.kube/config" \ --authentication-skip-lookup \ --clusterconfig=./hack/deploy/config.yaml

Generate CLI Reference Docs
$ ./hack/make.py test unit
Run e2e tests
Kubed uses Ginkgo to run e2e tests.
$ ./hack/make.py test e2e
To run e2e tests against remote backends, you need to set cloud provider credentials in
./hack/config/.env. You can see an example file in
