Kubernetes FlexVolumes are currently in Alpha state, so this plugin is as well. Use it at your own risk.
This project uses glide so the easiest way to install your dependencies is using that.
glide up to install your dependencies.

Then build the binary:
go build -o ploop main.go
In order to use the flexvolume driver, you'll need to install it on every node you want to use ploop on in the kubelet
volume-plugin-dir. By default this is
You need a directory for the volume driver vendor, so create it:
mkdir -p /usr/libexec/kubernetes/kubelet-plugins/volume/exec/jaxxstorm~ploop
Then drop the binary in there:
mv ploop /usr/libexec/kubernetes/kubelet-plugins/volume/exec/jaxxstorm~ploop/ploop
You can now use ploops as usual!
An example pod config would look like this:
apiVersion: v1 kind: Pod metadata: name: nginx-ploop spec: containers: - name: nginx image: nginx volumeMounts: - name: test mountPath: /data ports: - containerPort: 80 nodeSelector: os: parallels # make sure you label your nodes to be ploop compatible volumes: - name: test flexVolume: driver: "jaxxstorm/ploop" # this must match your vendor dir options: volumeId: "golang-ploop-test" size: "10G" volumePath: "/vstorage/storage_pool/kubernetes"
This will create a ploop volume
/vstorage/storage_pool/kubernetes/golang-ploop-test. The block device which will be mounted will be at
/vstorage/storage_pool/kubernetes/golang-ploop-test/golang-ploop-test and the
DiskDescriptor.xml will be located at /vstorage/storage_pool/kubernetes/golang-ploop-test/DiskDescriptior.xml`
You can verify the ploop volume was created by finding the node where your pod was scheduled by running
# ploop list ploop18115 /vstorage/storage_pool/kubernetes/golang-ploop-test/golang-ploop-test
