🚀 Quick Start

Create rinkeby.yaml manifest that describes an Ethereum node which uses go-ethereum client, connecting to rinkeby network, and enabling JSON-RPC server:

rinkeby.yaml
apiVersion: ethereum.kotal.io/v1alpha1
kind: Node
metadata:
name: rinkeby-geth-node
spec:
network: rinkeby
client: geth
rpc: true

Deploy the node using kubectl:

kubectl apply -f rinkeby.yaml

Within a couple of seconds, the node will be up and running. You can get the node using:

kubectl get nodes.ethereum

It will return an output similar to the following:

NAME CLIENT Network Consensus
rinkeby-geth-node geth rinkeby poa

Kotal will create all the necessary pods, volumes, services for the node. Get the pods by:

kubectl get pods

It will return an output similar to the following:

NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE
rinkeby-geth-node-0 1/1 Running 0 1m

Finally delete the node by:

kubectl delete -f rinkeby.yaml

Congratulations!
