This document explains how you can install APISIX ingress locally on kind.

Prerequisites#

tip

If you encounter issues, check the version you are using. This document uses kind v0.12.0, Helm v3.8.1, and kubectl v1.23.5.

Create a kind cluster#

Ensure you have Docker running and start the kind cluster:

kind create cluster

See Ingress to learn more about setting up ingress on a kind cluster.

Install APISIX and ingress controller#

The script below installs APISIX and the ingress controller:

helm repo add apisix https://charts.apiseven.com
helm repo add bitnami https://charts.bitnami.com/bitnami
helm repo update
kubectl create ns ingress-apisix
helm install apisix apisix/apisix \
--set gateway.type=NodePort \
--set ingress-controller.enabled=true \
--namespace ingress-apisix \
--set ingress-controller.config.apisix.serviceNamespace=ingress-apisix
kubectl get service --namespace ingress-apisix

This will create the five resources mentioned below:

  • apisix-gateway: dataplane the process the traffic.
  • apisix-admin: control plane that processes all configuration changes.
  • apisix-ingress-controller: ingress controller which exposes APISIX.
  • apisix-etcd and apisix-etcd-headless: stores configuration and handles internal communication.

You should now be able to use APISIX ingress controller. You can try running this minimal example to see if everything is working perfectly.
