Pykube (pykube-ng) is a lightweight Python 3.6+ client library for Kubernetes.

This is a fork of `kelproject/pykube <https://github.com/kelproject/pykube>`_ which is no longer maintained (archived). Here the original text of the pykube README:

Kel is an open source Platform as a Service (PaaS) from Eldarion, Inc. that
makes it easy to manage web application deployment and hosting through the
entire lifecycle from development through testing to production. It adds
components and tools on top of Kubernetes that help developers manage their
application infrastructure. Kel builds on Eldarion's 7+ years experience running
one of the leading Python and Django PaaSes.
For more information about Kel, see `kelproject.com`_ or follow us on Twitter

* HTTP interface using requests using kubeconfig for authentication
* Python native querying of Kubernetes API objects


To install pykube, use pip::

pip install pykube-ng

Interactive Console

The ``pykube`` library module can be run as an interactive console locally for quick exploration.
It will automatically load ``~/.kube/config`` to provide the ``api`` object, and it loads pykube classes (``Deployment``, ``Pod``, ..) into local context:

.. code-block:: bash

python3 -m pykube
>>> [d.name for d in Deployment.objects(api)]


Query for all ready pods in a custom namespace:

.. code:: python

import operator
import pykube

api = pykube.HTTPClient(pykube.KubeConfig.from_file())
pods = pykube.Pod.objects(api).filter(namespace="gondor-system")
ready_pods = filter(operator.attrgetter("ready"), pods)

Access any attribute of the Kubernetes object:

.. code:: python

pod = pykube.Pod.objects(api).filter(namespace="gondor-system").get(name="my-pod")

Selector query:

.. code:: python

pods = pykube.Pod.objects(api).filter(
selector={"gondor.io/name__in": {"api-web", "api-worker"}},
pending_pods = pykube.objects.Pod.objects(api).filter(
field_selector={"status.phase": "Pending"}

Watch query:

.. code:: python

watch = pykube.Job.objects(api, namespace="gondor-system")
watch = watch.filter(field_selector={"metadata.name": "my-job"}).watch()

# watch is a generator:
for watch_event in watch:
print(watch_event.type) # 'ADDED', 'DELETED', 'MODIFIED'
print(watch_event.object) # pykube.Job object

Create a Deployment:

.. code:: python

obj = {
"apiVersion": "apps/v1",
"kind": "Deployment",
"metadata": {
"name": "my-deploy",
"namespace": "gondor-system"
"spec": {
"replicas": 3,
"selector": {
"matchLabels": {
"app": "nginx"
"template": {
"metadata": {
"labels": {
"app": "nginx"
"spec": {
"containers": [
"name": "nginx",
"image": "nginx",
"ports": [
{"containerPort": 80}
pykube.Deployment(api, obj).create()

Delete a Deployment:

.. code:: python

obj = {
"apiVersion": "apps/v1",
"kind": "Deployment",
"metadata": {
"name": "my-deploy",
"namespace": "gondor-system"
pykube.Deployment(api, obj).delete()

Check server version:

.. code:: python

api = pykube.HTTPClient(pykube.KubeConfig.from_file())


* Python 3.6+
* requests (included in ``install_requires``)
* PyYAML (included in ``install_requires``)

Local Development

You can run pykube against your current kubeconfig context, e.g. local Minikube_:

.. code-block:: bash

pipenv install --dev
pipenv run python3
>>> import pykube
>>> config = pykube.KubeConfig.from_file()
>>> api = pykube.HTTPClient(config)
>>> list(pykube.Deployment.objects(api))

To run PEP8 (flake8) checks and unit tests including coverage report:

.. code-block:: bash

make test
