Welcome to the Github presence for DigitalOcean's managed Kubernetes Service, or DOKS.

The purpose of this repository is to offer a general platform to users that would like to engage in the development process for DOKS. We encourage everybody to file issues for feature requests and bug reports if a better fit cannot be found across one of the more specific repositories within the DOKS / Kubernetes-on-DO ecosystem. (Don't worry, when in doubt just file an issue here and we'll make sure it gets moved to the right place as needed.)

Note that support-related requests should be directed towards one of the existing support channels.

Related Repositories

The following list of repositories enable or help manage Kubernetes clusters on DigitalOcean, including both DOKS and DIY (Do-It-Yourself) flavors.

Please prefer filing an issue in one of them if your feature request or bug report is specifically targetting a particular repository.

  • DigitalOcean Cloud Controller Manager: The the Kubernetes Cloud Controller Manager implementation for DigitalOcean. Responsible for bootstrapping nodes and integrating DigitalOcean Load Balancers through Service objects (including the list of supported configuration annotations).
  • CSI-DigitalOcean: A Container Storage Interface (CSI) Driver for DigitalOcean Block Storage. The CSI plugin allows you to conveniently use DigitalOcean Block Storage on DigitalOcean Kubernetes clusters.
  • doctl: A command line tool for DigitalOcean services that makes it easy to create, update, and delete DOKS clusters.
  • godo: The official DigitalOcean Go API client to support programmatic access to DOKS.
