Kine (Kine is not etcd)


NOTE: On 2020-11-19, this repository was moved out of the org to supporting the acceptance of K3s as a CNCF sandbox project.

Kine is an etcdshim that translates etcd API to:

  • SQLite
  • Postgres
  • MySQL
  • NATS Jetstream


  • Can be ran standalone so any k8s (not just K3s) can use Kine
  • Implements a subset of etcdAPI (not usable at all for general purpose etcd)
  • Translates etcdTX calls into the desired API (Create, Update, Delete)

See an example.
