We've extended Kubernetes with Node custom resource which can be used to deploy Chainlink nodes from the given spec.

apiVersion: chainlink.kotal.io/v1alpha1
kind: Node
  name: my-node
  # your node spec goes here

Using Chainlink Node custom resource, you can describe any chainlink node, connect to EVM chain node, add jobs and satisfy requests, and Kotal will create all the necessary Kubernetes resources like pods, persistent volumes, services, configmaps, and secrets for you.

If you want to get all the deployted chainlink Node(s):

kubectl get nodes.chainlink

Which will report node name, client, Ethereum chain ID, and Link contract address.

If you want to get all the fields associated with chainlink Node:

kubectl explain nodes --api-version chainlink.kotal.io/v1alpha1
