Kubernetes Programming with Go: Programming Kubernetes Clients and Operators Using Go and the Kubernetes API
This book begins by introducing the structure of the Kubernetes API and which operations it serves. Following chapters demonstrate how to write native Kubernetes resources definitions using Go structures defined in the API and API Machinery libraries. Miscellaneous utilities are described to help you work with different resource fields and to convert your resource definitions to or from YAML or JSON. Next, you will learn how to interact with the Kubernetes API server to create, delete, update, and monitor resources in a cluster using the client-go library. A complete chapter is devoted to tools provided to test your programs using the client-go library. An example follows to wrap up the first part of the book, describing how to write a kubectl plugin. Next, you will learn how to extend the Kubernetes API using Custom Resource Definitions, and how to write Kubernetes resources in a generic way as well as how to create your own resources using the unstructured concept. The next chapters delve into the controller-runtime library, useful for extending Kubernetes by writing operators, and the kubebuilder framework, which leverages this library, to help you start writing operators in minutes.
