prefect-kubernetes

PyPI

Welcome!

prefect-kubernetes is a collection of Prefect tasks, flows, and blocks enabling orchestration, observation and management of Kubernetes resources.

Jump to examples.

Getting Started

Python setup

Requires an installation of Python 3.7+.

We recommend using a Python virtual environment manager such as pipenv, conda or virtualenv.

These tasks are designed to work with Prefect 2.0. For more information about how to use Prefect, please refer to the Prefect documentation.

Installation

Install prefect-kubernetes with pip:

pip install prefect-kubernetes

Then, to register blocks on Prefect Cloud:

prefect block register -m prefect_kubernetes

Note, to use the load method on Blocks, you must already have a block document saved through code or saved through the UI.

Example Usage

Use with_options to customize options on any existing task or flow

from prefect_kubernetes.flows import run_namespaced_job

customized_run_namespaced_job = run_namespaced_job.with_options(
    name="My flow running a Kubernetes Job",
    retries=2,
    retry_delay_seconds=10,
) # this is now a new flow object that can be called

For more tips on how to use tasks and flows in a Collection, check out Using Collections!

Specify and run a Kubernetes Job from a yaml file

from prefect_kubernetes.credentials import KubernetesCredentials
from prefect_kubernetes.flows import run_namespaced_job # this is a flow
from prefect_kubernetes.jobs import KubernetesJob

k8s_creds = KubernetesCredentials.load("k8s-creds")

job = KubernetesJob.from_yaml_file( # or create in the UI with a dict manifest
    credentials=k8s_creds,
    manifest_path="path/to/job.yaml",
)

job.save("my-k8s-job", overwrite=True)

if __name__ == "__main__":
    # run the flow
    run_namespaced_job(job)

Generate a resource-specific client from KubernetesClusterConfig

# with minikube / docker desktop & a valid ~/.kube/config this should ~just work~™️
from prefect.blocks.kubernetes import KubernetesClusterConfig
from prefect_kubernetes.credentials import KubernetesCredentials

k8s_config = KubernetesClusterConfig.from_file('~/.kube/config')

k8s_credentials = KubernetesCredentials(cluster_config=k8s_config)

with k8s_credentials.get_client("core") as v1_core_client:
    for namespace in v1_core_client.list_namespace().items:
        print(namespace.metadata.name)

List jobs in a specific namespace

from prefect import flow
from prefect_kubernetes.credentials import KubernetesCredentials
from prefect_kubernetes.jobs import list_namespaced_job

@flow
def kubernetes_orchestrator():
    v1_job_list = list_namespaced_job(
        kubernetes_credentials=KubernetesCredentials.load("k8s-creds"),
        namespace="my-namespace",
    )

Patch an existing deployment

from kubernetes.client.models import V1Deployment

from prefect import flow
from prefect_kubernetes.credentials import KubernetesCredentials
from prefect_kubernetes.deployments import patch_namespaced_deployment
from prefect_kubernetes.utilities import convert_manifest_to_model

@flow
def kubernetes_orchestrator():

    v1_deployment_updates = convert_manifest_to_model(
        manifest="path/to/manifest.yaml",
        v1_model_name="V1Deployment",
    )

    v1_deployment = patch_namespaced_deployment(
        kubernetes_credentials=KubernetesCredentials.load("k8s-creds"),
        deployment_name="my-deployment",
        deployment_updates=v1_deployment_updates,
        namespace="my-namespace"
    )
