type DefaultRESTMapper

type DefaultRESTMapper struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

DefaultRESTMapper exposes mappings between the types defined in a runtime.Scheme. It assumes that all types defined the provided scheme can be mapped with the provided MetadataAccessor and Codec interfaces.

The resource name of a Kind is defined as the lowercase, English-plural version of the Kind string in v1beta3 and onwards, and as the camelCase version of the name in v1beta1 and v1beta2. When converting from resource to Kind, the singular version of the resource name is also accepted for convenience.

TODO: Only accept plural for some operations for increased control? (`get pod bar` vs `get pods bar`)

func NewDefaultRESTMapper

func NewDefaultRESTMapper(versions []string, f VersionInterfacesFunc) *DefaultRESTMapper

NewDefaultRESTMapper initializes a mapping between Kind and APIVersion to a resource name and back based on the objects in a runtime.Scheme and the Kubernetes API conventions. Takes a priority list of the versions to search when an object has no default version (set empty to return an error) and a function that retrieves the correct codec and metadata for a given version.

func (*DefaultRESTMapper) Add

func (m *DefaultRESTMapper) Add(scope RESTScope, kind string, version string, mixedCase bool)

func (*DefaultRESTMapper) RESTMapping

func (m *DefaultRESTMapper) RESTMapping(kind string, versions ...string) (*RESTMapping, error)

RESTMapping returns a struct representing the resource path and conversion interfaces a RESTClient should use to operate on the provided kind in order of versions. If a version search order is not provided, the search order provided to DefaultRESTMapper will be used to resolve which APIVersion should be used to access the named kind.

func (*DefaultRESTMapper) VersionAndKindForResource

func (m *DefaultRESTMapper) VersionAndKindForResource(resource string) (defaultVersion, kind string, err error)

VersionAndKindForResource implements RESTMapper

type Interface

type Interface interface {

	Namespace() string
	SetNamespace(namespace string)
	Name() string
	SetName(name string)
	UID() types.UID
	SetUID(uid types.UID)
	ResourceVersion() string
	SetResourceVersion(version string)
	SelfLink() string
	SetSelfLink(selfLink string)
	Labels() map[string]string
	SetLabels(labels map[string]string)
	Annotations() map[string]string
	SetAnnotations(annotations map[string]string)

Interface lets you work with object and list metadata from any of the versioned or internal API objects. Attempting to set or retrieve a field on an object that does not support that field (Name, UID, Namespace on lists) will be a no-op and return a default value. TODO: rename to ObjectInterface when we clear up these interfaces.

func Accessor

func Accessor(obj interface{}) (Interface, error)

Accessor takes an arbitary object pointer and returns meta.Interface. obj must be a pointer to an API type. An error is returned if the minimum required fields are missing. Fields that are not required return the default value and are a no-op if set. TODO: add a fast path for *TypeMeta and *ObjectMeta for internal objects

type MetadataAccessor

type MetadataAccessor interface {
	APIVersion(obj runtime.Object) (string, error)
	SetAPIVersion(obj runtime.Object, version string) error

	Kind(obj runtime.Object) (string, error)
	SetKind(obj runtime.Object, kind string) error

	Namespace(obj runtime.Object) (string, error)
	SetNamespace(obj runtime.Object, namespace string) error

	Name(obj runtime.Object) (string, error)
	SetName(obj runtime.Object, name string) error

	UID(obj runtime.Object) (types.UID, error)
	SetUID(obj runtime.Object, uid types.UID) error

	SelfLink(obj runtime.Object) (string, error)
	SetSelfLink(obj runtime.Object, selfLink string) error

	Labels(obj runtime.Object) (map[string]string, error)
	SetLabels(obj runtime.Object, labels map[string]string) error

	Annotations(obj runtime.Object) (map[string]string, error)
	SetAnnotations(obj runtime.Object, annotations map[string]string) error


MetadataAccessor lets you work with object and list metadata from any of the versioned or internal API objects. Attempting to set or retrieve a field on an object that does not support that field (Name, UID, Namespace on lists) will be a no-op and return a default value.

MetadataAccessor exposes Interface in a way that can be used with multiple objects.

func NewAccessor

func NewAccessor() MetadataAccessor

NewAccessor returns a MetadataAccessor that can retrieve or manipulate resource version on objects derived from core API metadata concepts.

type RESTMapper

type RESTMapper interface {
	VersionAndKindForResource(resource string) (defaultVersion, kind string, err error)
	RESTMapping(kind string, versions ...string) (*RESTMapping, error)

RESTMapper allows clients to map resources to kind, and map kind and version to interfaces for manipulating those objects. It is primarily intended for consumers of Kubernetes compatible REST APIs as defined in docs/

type RESTMapping

type RESTMapping struct {
	// Resource is a string representing the name of this resource as a REST client would see it
	Resource string
	// APIVersion represents the APIVersion that represents the resource as presented. It is provided
	// for convenience for passing around a consistent mapping.
	APIVersion string
	Kind       string

	// Scope contains the information needed to deal with REST Resources that are in a resource hierarchy
	Scope RESTScope


RESTMapping contains the information needed to deal with objects of a specific resource and kind in a RESTful manner.

type RESTScope

type RESTScope interface {
	// Name of the scope
	Name() RESTScopeName
	// ParamName is the optional name of the parameter that should be inserted in the resource url
	// If empty, no param will be inserted
	ParamName() string
	// ParamPath is a boolean that controls how the parameter is manifested in resource paths
	// If true, this parameter is encoded in path (i.e. /{paramName}/{paramValue})
	// If false, this parameter is encoded in query (i.e. ?{paramName}={paramValue})
	ParamPath() bool
	// ParamDescription is the optional description to use to document the parameter in api documentation
	ParamDescription() string

RESTScope contains the information needed to deal with REST resources that are in a resource hierarchy TODO After we deprecate v1beta1 and v1beta2, we can look a supporting removing the flexibility of supporting either a query or path param, and instead just support path param

type RESTScopeName

type RESTScopeName string
const (
	RESTScopeNameNamespace RESTScopeName = "namespace"
	RESTScopeNameRoot      RESTScopeName = "root"

type TypeInterface

type TypeInterface interface {
	APIVersion() string
	SetAPIVersion(version string)
	Kind() string
	SetKind(kind string)

TypeInterface exposes the type and APIVersion of versioned or internal API objects.

func TypeAccessor

func TypeAccessor(obj interface{}) (TypeInterface, error)

TypeAccessor returns an interface that allows retrieving and modifying the APIVersion and Kind of an in-memory internal object. TODO: this interface is used to test code that does not have ObjectMeta or ListMeta in round tripping (objects which can use apiVersion/kind, but do not fit the Kube api conventions).

type VersionInterfaces

type VersionInterfaces struct {

VersionInterfaces contains the interfaces one should use for dealing with types of a particular version.

type VersionInterfacesFunc

type VersionInterfacesFunc func(apiVersion string) (*VersionInterfaces, bool)

VersionInterfacesFunc returns the appropriate codec, typer, and metadata accessor for a given api version, or false if no such api version exists.
