Setting Up a Development Environment

Setting Up a Development Environment

This page describes how to setup a working development environment that can be used in developing stackube on Ubuntu or CentOS. These instructions assume you’re already installed git, golang and python on your host.

Getting the code

Grab the code:

git clone git://

Spawn up Kubernetes and OpenStack

devstack is used to spawn up a kubernetes and openstack environment.

Create stack user:

sudo useradd -s /bin/bash -d /opt/stack -m stack
echo "stack ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL" | sudo tee /etc/sudoers.d/stack
sudo su - stack

Grab the devstack:

git clone -b stable/ocata
cd devstack

Create a local.conf:

curl -sSL -o local.conf

Start installation:


Setup environment variables for kubectl and openstack client:

export KUBECONFIG=/etc/kubernetes/admin.conf
source openrc admin admin

Add a new node

Same procedure as above, but create the local.conf by following command:

curl -sSL -o local.conf

And configure local.conf:

  • Set HOST_IP to local host’s IP
  • Set SERVICE_HOST to master’s IP
  • Set KUBEADM_TOKEN to kubeadm token

Start installation:
