    If I'm not mistaken, the biggest user of openresty is the Kubernetes community-maintained nginx ingress controller [1].

  • Test Out the Kubernetes Terraform Provider
    2 projects | | 10 May 2022
    The Terraform resources that have been defined so far create everything that’s needed to run an application accessible to the cluster, but more resources are needed to access the application from the outside world. Most importantly, a load balancer should be put in front of the “Hello World” service to handle the traffic. This tutorial uses the Nginx Ingress Controller and the Helm Terraform provider to create it. Add the following to to create the Nginx ingress controller:

    Using the Helm Terraform provider and, in turn, the Helm chart makes creating the required Kubernetes resource much easier because it’s not necessary to add a bunch of boilerplate to the Terraform file. If you’d like to explore more than is covered in this tutorial, feel free to check out the Helm chart here. When Terraform creates the helm_release resource, it will create an ingress-nginx-controller deployment, pod, replica set, and other resources required to run the load balancer within the cluster. One more resource needs to be added to expose the Nginx controller to the outside world. Create a Kubernetes ingress for the Nginx controller by adding the following resource definition to

    You probably want to make it a DaemonSet (kind: DaemonSet in values.yaml), so that it runs a pod on all nodes (might also need a toleration if the control-plane node is tainted) and hostPort.enabled: true, so that it will listen on nodes' :80 and :443.
