kube-rclone is a rclone mount solution for Kubernetes. It allows you to sync files and directories to and from different cloud storage providers i.e Google Drive. It creates a Daemonset across the Kubernetes cluster which mounts a volume on the `hostPath` that can be used with other services such as [kube-plex](

Coming soon...
## Prerequisites
* rclone config that has the cloud storage drive defined

This can be created by running `rclone config` which will take you through an interactive configuration session to generate the `rclone.conf` file.

## Setup
The setup guide will help you get rclone running as a Daemonset on Kubernetes.

1. Add the contents of the `rclone.conf` file into `files/rclone.conf`
2. Deploy the kube-rclone chart with the correct remote and path defined from the `rclone.conf` file

> helm install ./kube-rclone --name rclone \
--namespace rclone \
--set rclone.remote=[insert remote to mount here] \
--set rclone.path=[insert mount path for remote] \
--set rclone.readOnly=true

This will deploy a Daemonset across the Kubernetes cluster that will run rclone with the mounted remote i.e Google Drive on the `hostPath` of the node which can be used with other services.

Additional arguments can be set to customise `rclone mount` depending on the Kubernetes node resources. Some additional arguments have been commented out which are based on several user set-ups. They can be used based on user preference. Mount options can be found [here](

## Constraints

It has only been tested with [kube-plex]( so far. There's still more work to be done to make it stable for other services e.g [Radarr]( and [Sonarr](
