Meteor + Kubernetes (announcement: first draft is ready)

Hello Guys!

Is anyone interested in basic guide of using kubernetes with meteor projects? Like building docker images, docker registry, simple pipelines, versioning, zero-downtime deployments, https, scaling etc?

I can also share my experience with microservice architecture (kubernetes + meteor).

I’m. I began to study docker this weekend to make a deploy with it.

That would be nice! Much appreciated.

I think this would also be a great candidate for the community newsletter (Related: https://github.com/Meteor-Community-Packages/organization/issues/6). @storyteller what do you think?

That would be fantastic!

Would really love to have this… when would this guide be available?
Been searching for documentation on meteor-kubernetes… to no avail.
hope this would be available soon… thank in advance.

could maybe also say a word or two on the topic, i operate all meteor apps on kubernetes

that would be great ! I do not know where to start with Kubernetes !

As OP has completely left us hanging, I’d love to see anything you have on the topic.

Guys, thanks for the replies. I need some time to make a proper guide, but we can start with the basics, I will let you know soon when the first draft will be available on github.

That would be great, personally i use docker swarm for deploy some meteor apps and i’m interested to the know the advantage of kubernetes over swarm :smiley:

I am working through this myself and would find other developers experiences and tips very useful.

Yes please! I would love this.

Sure! Would appreciate a lot.

Almost done, the first draft should be available tomorrow!

Thanks! very very useful indeed… will be testing the guide this weekend…
Will this also include gitlab-integration? that would be very much appreciated!

you can take a look at the default gitlab autodevops setup.

I used that to create an gitlab-ci include file. I provide it here as-is (it’s not the most recent one though).

It also includes an opinionated semantic-release flow, which enforces semantic commits and creates a changelog from them. You can ignore that part.

the important bits are meteor-build, docker-build and deploy-to-kubernetes

it uses helm. I am using this chart: http://panter.git.panter.biz/helm-charts/files/manulstack-0.3.0.tgz

here is the gitlab-ci include file: https://git.panter.ch/open-source/gitlab-ci/raw/1.0.0-beta.24/includes/meteor-kubernetes.yml

I think about open-sourcing it more, but at the moment, consider it as an inspiration.
