Kubectl Installation

Kubectl is not yet in the distribution package managers, so we'll need to install it manually.

curl -LO "https://storage.googleapis.com/kubernetes-release/release/$(\
  curl -s https://storage.googleapis.com/kubernetes-release/release/stable.txt\
  )/bin/linux/amd64/kubectl"
chmod +x kubectl
mv kubectl ~/.local/bin/kubectl

Configure kubectl

Set editor

# File ~/.bashrc
KUBE_EDITOR="vim"

Set auto completion

# File ~/.bashrc
source <(kubectl completion bash)

Configure EKS cluster

To configure the access to an existing cluster, we'll let aws-cli create the required files:

aws eks update-kubeconfig --name {{ cluster_name }}
