HAProxy Ingress controller

Ingress controller implementation for HAProxy loadbalancer.

Build Status Docker Repository on Quay

HAProxy Ingress is a Kubernetes ingress controller: it configures a HAProxy instance to route incoming requests from an external network to the in-cluster applications. The routing configurations are built reading specs from the Kubernetes cluster. Updates made to the cluster are applied on the fly to the HAProxy instance.

Use HAProxy Ingress


Supported versions:

  • Beta quality versions (beta/canary tags) has some new, but battle tested features, usually running on some of our production clusters
  • Development versions (snapshot tags) has major changes with few tests, usually not recommended for production
  • (*) Since v0.12 HAProxy Ingress supports an external 2.0+ haproxy deployment


Develop HAProxy Ingress


mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/
cd $GOPATH/src/
git clone
cd haproxy-ingress

The following make targets are currently supported:

  • install: run go install which saves some building time.
  • build (default): compiles HAProxy Ingress and generates an ELF (Linux) executable at rootfs/haproxy-ingress-controller despite the source platform.
  • test: run unit tests
  • image: generates a Docker image tagged localhost/haproxy-ingress:latest
You can’t perform that action at this time.
