This repository contains a collection of Camel K examples useful to understand how it works, common use cases and the idiomatic programming model.
You can find more information about Apache Camel and Apache Camel K on the official Camel website.
To better work on all examples, make sure you have all them locally by checking out the git repository:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:apache/camel-k-examples.git
We suggest you to open the examples with VSCode because it provides useful extensions for working with Camel K files. If you've already installed it on your machine, after cloning the repository, you can open the examples on the IDE executing:
We suggest you to install the following extensions for VSCode (The IDE should automatically prompt to ask you to install them):
All examples require that you are connected to a Kubernetes/OpenShift cluster, even a local instance such as Minikube or CRC. Some advanced examples may have additional requirements.
Ensure that you've followed the Camel K installation guide for your specific cluster before looking at the examples.
All examples need at least the following CLI tools installed on your system:
kubectl: the Kubernetes default CLI tool that can be downloaded from the Kubernetes releases page.
kamel: the Apache Camel K CLI that can be downloaded from the Camel K release page.
We are providing also a folder containing multiple generic examples in Generic Examples folder.
In the Kamelets folder, you'll get a set of examples based on Kamelets.
Examples are contained in directories ordered by level of difficulty.
Most examples provide a
readme.didact.md file instead of the standard readme file. For those, if you're using VSCode with Didact installed, you can right click on the
readme.didact.md file and hit “Didact: Start Didact Tutorial from File”.
