Traefik

Traefik is a modern HTTP reverse proxy and load balancer made to deploy microservices with ease.

Introduction

This chart bootstraps Traefik version 2 as a Kubernetes ingress controller, using Custom Resources IngressRoute: https://docs.traefik.io/providers/kubernetes-crd/.

Philosophy

The Traefik HelmChart is focused on Traefik deployment configuration.

To keep this HelmChart as generic as possible we tend to avoid integrating any third party solutions nor any specific use cases.

Accordingly, the encouraged approach to fulfill your needs: 1. override the default Traefik configuration values (yaml file or cli) 2. append your own configurations (kubectl apply -f myconf.yaml) 3. extend this HelmChart (as a Subchart)

Installing

Prerequisites

With the command helm version, make sure that you have: - Helm v3 installed

Add Traefik’s chart repository to Helm:

helm repo add traefik https://containous.github.io/traefik-helm-chart

You can update the chart repository by running:

helm repo update

Deploying Traefik

helm install traefik traefik/traefik

Warning

If you are using Helm v2

You have to deploy CRDs manually with the following command:

kubectl apply -f traefik/crds

Exposing the Traefik dashboard

This HelmChart does not expose the Traefik dashboard by default, for security concerns. Thus, there are multiple ways to expose the dashboard. For instance, the dashboard access could be achieved through a port-forward :

kubectl port-forward $(kubectl get pods --selector "app.kubernetes.io/name=traefik" --output=name) 9000:9000

Another way would be to apply your own configuration, for instance, by defining and applying an IngressRoute CRD (kubectl apply -f dashboard.yaml):

# dashboard.yaml
apiVersion: traefik.containo.us/v1alpha1
kind: IngressRoute
metadata:
  name: dashboard
spec:
  entryPoints:
    - web
  routes:
    - match: Host(`traefik.localhost`) && (PathPrefix(`/dashboard`) || PathPrefix(`/api`))
      kind: Rule
      services:
        - name: api@internal
          kind: TraefikService
