replictl apply

Create or update system and clusters configuration.
This interface is modelled after kubernetes for its many advantages and for the familiarity of the format.

This interface is NOT meant to interact with kubernetes or imply any kind of relationship between the two project.

Unlike kubectl apply, Replicante can only apply one object at a time and files must contain only one document in each YAML file.

This limitation will be removed in the future.

replictl apply [OPTIONS] --file <FILE>

Objects format

Because of the extensible nature of this interface the objects you can apply and their specification are documented in the relevant features.

Regardless of the object you are looking to apply the following attributes are required:

  • apiVersion is a string in the format <DOMAIN>/<VERSION> that determines the API group and version for the object you are applying.
  • kind is a string that identifies the class of object you are applying. Available options for this value are determined by the API group.
  • metadata is an object that includes information about the object you are applying. Usually the metadata object includes an identifier for the object as well as a scope.
  • spec is determined by the apiVersion and kind.

The details of the metadata attributes as well as all spec attributes are documented along side the supported apiVersion and kind values.

The scope attributes can be used to set or override values in the metadata object:

  • The namespace scope attribute is set as the metadata.namespace attribute.
  • The cluster scope attribute is set as the metadata.cluster attribute.
  • The node scope attribute is set as the metadata.node attribute.
