Creating a local CI/CD pipeline from nothing

This is going to be a long and continuously updated story and a long overdue one.

I often ask myself why I haven’t yet experimented with the tech I use. There is no answer other than procrastination. So lets dive right in.

Problems

So, somethings have gone naturally and I can’t yet overcome some obstacles.

  • Calico is a nightmare to setup. There is something wrong with its autodetection and even if correct adaptor is given, we get no internet access for some reason. Pods cant reach core-dns service ip. I’ve setup a cluster for calico about 15 times I think. Flannel works immediately so there’s something else calico needs. After Rancher, I will check again.

Just a software everything fighting battles against mostly myself, and gaining small victories lately.
