In the last7days series on this blog I’ll revisit interesting content from twitter from the last 7 days and I’ll add further comments or responses to feedback which I got. The list will have about 3-5 pieces of content to keep it crisp and I hope you like what you see!

1) A Primer: Accessing Services in Kubernetes by @alexellis

I know Alex' blog from his work on OpenFaas and from his very good tutorial on how to self-host Kubernetes on an Raspberry Pi.

Now he wrote a detailed on Kubernetes services, where he highlighted inlets as local tunnel server for reaching the pods in your cluster. On top you get a good overview on using nginx as an Ingress layer for your worklods in Kubernetes.

2) How to Generate an Ansible Inventory with Terraform by @igroenew

For a SaaS solution, which I am currently building I built up a Kubernetes cluster on Hetzner Cloud and I used this also as a learning opportunity for getting into Terraform to manage the infrastructure, which I create. (Of course I toyed around with individual unmanaged VMs on e.g. AWS, but this doesn’t lead anywhere in terms of getting a sustainable solution).

Generate Ansible Inventory from Terraform

For some time I was not clear how Terraform and Ansible would properly fit together and this blog helped me with closing this gap. Now my terraform script updates my ansible inventory, which I can use in turn use to e.g. regularly patch my VMs.

3) PyFlow: NodeRed based on Python by @frederico_mathis

Simply a cool idea to port NodeRed to Python!

I am happy to get feedback from you!
