Deployment cluster configuration and operations for Kubernetes.


Decco is a lightweight framework that simplifies the deployment, network configuration, and security hardening of Internet-facing applications in a highly multi-tenant environment.

The documentation is under construction, but in the meantime, this Kubecon Austin 2017 presentation gives a good overview and demonstration:

Decco solves and automates the following problems:

  • Confining applications to well-defined boundaries which could be based on customer or geographical region
  • Exposing applications on the Internet via automatic DNS and LoadBalancer configuration
  • Securing communications using end-to-end TLS and Kubernetes Network Policies.
  • Routing network requests to the correct application endpoints
  • Collecting and aggregating log files


Littering print statements throughout your code in order to debug complicated reconcilation loops can become difficult to reason about. With that said, this repo offers at least 1 opinionated way of setting break points for iterative development.

  1. Create a file named kubeconfig at the root of this repo (same place as the Makefile)

  2. Have vscode installed

  3. Go to the controller you would like to debug and set a breakpoint
    Ex: pkg/controllers/app_controller.go --> click to the left of a line number to place a red dot

  4. Run make operator-debug to build the operator binary
    NOTE: if you get errors relating to controller-gen, try running hack/

  5. Click on vscode's Debug tab and click the green button near the top-left
    This repo includes a launch.json configured to work with the above steps.

Go toolchain configuration

By default, kplane downloads a complete Go toolchain to ./build and uses this within the Makefile. To ensure that you and the IDE are using, you will need to set the following manually:

export GOROOT=$(pwd)/build/go
export PATH=${GOROOT}/bin:$(PATH)

If you are using an IDE, also update the Go toolchain there too. In Goland, update the GOROOT in the project settings (Go > GOROOT).

Alternatively, you can also disable the use of the Go toolchain in ./build; just export an empty GO_TOOLCHAIN:

export GO_TOOLCHAIN=""

Release Workflow

Decco uses semantic versioning. To release a new version of Decco.

  1. (a) If you are releasing a major or minor version, such as v1.0.0 or v1.3.0, you create a new branch, named release-x.y, where x and y are the major and minor version respectively. Or, (b) if you are releasing a patch, such as 1.3.5, you check out the existing branch with the appropriate major and minor version. For example, for 1.3.5 check out release-1.3.

  2. On the release branch, create and push a commit that bumps VERSION to your desired version. Do not push this commit to the master branch.

  3. If needed, thoroughly test the release branch.

  4. Then, run the (Platform9 internal) decco-release TeamCity build. This will effectively run the release script: ./hack/ Alternatively, in a preconfigured environment you could run make release instead.

  5. If everything succeeds, the version commit will be tagged, Github release will be created and Docker images will be published for the given version.

In case you need to revert a release, you will need to manually delete the git tag, the github release, and delete the created Docker images. You will also need to re-tag the previous images to latest.
