4 Creating a Pod

We are now ready to deploy our Hugo app. To start, we will create a single Pod.

Create a pod

Create a file called pod.yml:

katarinabrookfield@KatsMac hugo-site % vi pod.yml

Enter the following info into the pod.yml file:

apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
  name: hugo-site-pod
    project: hugo-site
    - name: web-ctr
      image: katbrookfield/hugo-site
        - containerPort: 8080

Deploy the app

Run the following command to deploy the app:

katarinabrookfield@KatsMac hugo-site % kubectl apply -f pod.yml
pod/hugo-site-pod created

Verify that the pod is running:

katarinabrookfield@KatsMac hugo-site % kubectl get pod hugo-site-pod -o wide
NAME            READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE   IP          NODE                          NOMINATED NODE   READINESS GATES
hugo-site-pod   1/1     Running   0          43s   lke27049-39949-60a53134727c   <none>           <none>

We are now running Hugo on Kubernetes! Next we need to define a service to be able to connect to our website.
