Gardener Extension for Calico Networking

CI Build status Go Report Card

This controller operates on the Network resource in the extensions.gardener.cloud/v1alpha1 API group. It manages those objects that are requesting Calico Networking configuration (.spec.type=calico):

---
apiVersion: extensions.gardener.cloud/v1alpha1
kind: Network
metadata:
  name: calico-network
  namespace: shoot--core--test-01
spec:
  type: calico
  clusterCIDR: 192.168.0.0/24
  serviceCIDR:  10.96.0.0/24
  providerConfig:
    apiVersion: calico.networking.extensions.gardener.cloud/v1alpha1
    kind: NetworkConfig
    ipam:
      type: host-local
      cidr: usePodCIDR
    ebpfDataplane:
      enabled: false
    ipv4:
      mode: Always
    backend: bird
    typha:
      enabled: true

Please find a concrete example in the example folder. All the Calico specific configuration should be configured in the providerConfig section. If additional configuration is required, it should be added to the networking-calico chart in controllers/networking-calico/charts/internal/calico/values.yaml and corresponding code parts should be adapted (for example in controllers/networking-calico/pkg/charts/utils.go).

Once the network resource is applied, the networking-calico controller would then create all the necessary managed-resources which should be picked up by the gardener-resource-manager which will then apply all the network extensions resources to the shoot cluster.

Finally after successful reconciliation an output similar to the one below should be expected.

  status:
    lastOperation:
      description: Successfully reconciled network
      lastUpdateTime: "..."
      progress: 100
      state: Succeeded
      type: Reconcile
    observedGeneration: 1
    providerStatus:
      apiVersion: calico.networking.extensions.gardener.cloud/v1alpha1
      kind: NetworkStatus

How to start using or developing this extension controller locally

You can run the controller locally on your machine by executing make start. Please make sure to have the kubeconfig pointed to the cluster you want to connect to. Static code checks and tests can be executed by running make verify. We are using Go modules for Golang package dependency management and Ginkgo/Gomega for testing.
