In order to build MetalK8s we rely and third-party tools, some of them are
mandatory, others are optional.
Python 3.6 or higher: our buildchain is
docker: to build some images locally
skopeo, 0.1.19 or higher: to save
local and remote images
hardlink: to de-duplicate images
mkisofs: to create the MetalK8s ISO
git: to add the Git reference in the build metadata
Vagrant, 1.8 or higher: to spawn a local
cluster (VirtualBox is currently the only provider supported)
VirtualBox: to spawn a local cluster
tox: to run the linters
If you want to develop on the buildchain, you can add the development
pip install -r requirements/build-dev-requirements.txt.
