Getting started

The fast path to Liqo

The following steps will guide you through a tour to learn how to install Liqo and experiment with its most notable capabilities.

  • Provision your playground: Deploy a couple of Kubernetes in Docker (KiND) clusters to play with Liqo
  • Install Liqo: Install Liqo on a first cluster (home cluster).
  • Peer to a foreign cluster: establish a peering with a second Liqo cluster (foreign cluster).
    • If you do not know who to peer with, you may need to install Liqo on a second cluster.
  • Leverage foreign resources: start an Hello World application to verify that the two peered clusters can actually share resources correctly and that you are able to run a pod in a foreign cluster.
  • Play with a micro-service application: play with a more structured application that includes multiple micro-services, to demonstrate the advanced capabilities of Liqo.
  • Uninstall Liqo: uninstall Liqo from your cluster.
