Early in June when Amazon EKS was launched, we released the first alpha version of eksctl on the same day with the vision of making EKS cluster creation simple.
Today we are excited to announce the first major release of eksctl – 0.1.0. A huge thanks to everyone who tried the alpha releases and especially to those who reported bugs and requested new features.
All feedback received so far has been incorporated into our roadmap. Before we can get to the big new features, we are planning to work on technical improvements. This will then allow us to proceed with some of the most requested features (e.g.: custom VPC configuration, nodegroup management). We hope to make progress on these improvements in 0.1.x patch releases, before reaching the 0.2.0 and 0.3.0 milestones.
As we use semantic versioning then 0.1.0 (and any 0.x.x version) should still be considered a development version and as such there may be breaking changes or bugs.
Jenkins X ♥ eksctl
“In the Jenkins X community, we are super happy with eksctl and use it with Jenkins X to create EKS clusters, which has saved us a lot of time. We used the time we saved trying to setup EKS clusters to improve Jenkins X support for other AWS services such Route53, NLB and ECR! Thankfully eksctl deals with all the IAM roles for us nicely, too.
Having the correct IAM roles so that you can use NLB and ECR with Kubernetes is surprisingly complex. eksctl automates that for you in one easy-to-type command. We love it! A big thanks to Ilya and the rest of the eksctl community who have been super helpful and responsive as we hit various issues in getting EKS setup in the correct way so we can use Jenkins X on it."
It is very exciting that popular projects such as Jenkins X are already using eksctl!
