Yeah, it’s a new year and it’s time for a new setup! I have been using docker swarm as my personal cluster for the past year. As I’m exposed to kubernetes more and more in my job, I just thought that maybe it’s time for me to actually do something with kubernetes in my free time to learn more about it. Besides, having knowledge about kubernetes benefits me in many ways considering how popular kubernetes has become.

In this blog post, I’m going to describe how I set up my personal cluster using k3s (a Lightweight kubernetes distribution) and rewrite the CI/CD pipeline to deploy to the new cluster instead of the old docker swarm cluster.
