Microk8s is a lightweight Kubernetes distribution that can run on a single machine. It is very easy to install and use. You can add custom addons to your Microk8s installation. Here are the steps to install EasyHAProxy on your Microk8s.
Enabling EasyHAProxy on MicroK8s
EasyHAProxy is being part of official MicroK8s Community edition since MicroK8s version 1.27.
Just enable the community add-on
microk8s enable community
and you'll see:
$ microk8s status microk8s is running ... addons: ... disabled: easyhaproxy # (community) EasyHAProxy can detect and configure HAProxy automatically based on ingress labels
However, if you are using MicroK8s before 1.27 you need to enable it directly from the ByJG repository by accessing the microk8s host machine and run:
microk8s addons repo add byjg https://github.com/byjg/microk8s-addons.git
And you should see:
$ microk8s status microk8s is running ... addons: ... disabled: easyhaproxy # (byjg) EasyHAProxy can detect and configure HAProxy automatically based on ingress labels ....
Installing EasyHAProxy addon
Once you have enable the EasyHAProxy from the community repository or from ByJG repository and can enable it by running:
Install as a Daemonset
microk8s enable easyhaproxy
Install as a NodePort
microk8s enable easyhaproxy --nodeport
Remember: you need to disable any ingress controller you have previously installed, for example, nginx, traefik, etc. before install EasyHaProxy.
For more parameters you can refer to the Kubernetes page.
