This section gives the community a space to provide information on setting
up, managing, and maintaining JupyterHub.
We recognize that Kubernetes has many deployment options. As a project team
with limited resources to provide end user support, we rely on community
members to share their collective Kubernetes knowledge and JupyterHub
Contributing to Z2JH. If you would like to help improve the Zero to
JupyterHub guide, please see the issues page as well as the contributor guide.
We hope that you will use this section to share deployments with on a variety
of infrastructure and for different use cases.
There is also a community maintained list of users of this
Guide and the JupyterHub Helm Chart.
Please submit an issue/pull request to add to this section. Thanks.
This is a page to collect a few particularly useful patterns and snippets
that help you interact with your Kubernetes cluster and JupyterHub.
If there’s something that you think is generic enough (and not obvious enough)
to be added to this page, please feel free to make a PR!
Kubernetes has a helper script that allows you to auto-complete commands
and references to objects when using kubectl. This lets you
TAB-complete and saves a lot of time.
Here are the instructions to install kubectl auto-completion.
Helm also has an auto-completion script that lets you TAB-complete
your commands when using Helm.
Here are the instructions to install helm auto-completion.
Oftentimes people manage multiple Kubernetes deployments at the same time.
kubectl handles this with the idea of “contexts”, which specify which
Kubernetes deployment you are referring to when you type kubectl get XXX.
kubectl get XXX
To see a list of contexts currently available to you, use the following
kubectl config get-contexts
This will list all of your Kubernetes contexts. You can select a particular
context by entering:
kubectl config use-context <CONTEXT-NAME>
If you grow tired of typing namespace=XXX each time you type a kubernetes
command, here’s a snippet that will allow you set a default namespace for
a given Kubernetes context:
kubectl config set-context $(kubectl config current-context) \
The above command will only apply to the currently active context, and will
allow you to skip the --namespace= part of your commands for this context.
Sometimes it’s useful to select an entire class of Kubernetes objects rather
than referring to them by their name. You can attach an arbitrary set of
labels to a Kubernetes object, and can then refer to those labels when
searching with kubectl.
To search based on a label value, use the -l or --selector= keyword
arguments. For example, JupyterHub creates a specific subset of labels for all
user pods. You can search for all user pods with the following label query:
kubectl --namespace=<YOUR-NAMESPACE> get pod \
For more information, see the Kubernetes labels and selectors page.
Sometimes the information that’s in the default output for kubectl get <XXX>
is not enough for your needs, or isn’t structured the way you’d like. We
recommend looking into the different Kubernetes output options, which can be
modified like so:
kubectl get <XXX>
kubectl --namespace=<NAMESPACE> get pod -o <json|yaml|wide|name...>
You can find more information on what kinds of output you can generate at
the kubectl information page.

Automatically deploy a JupyterHub on AWS from the Space Telescope Software Institute
Setup Kubernetes with Terraform
This repo houses several example Kubernetes cluster deployments on AWS.
Terraform tutorial example
This is meant to introduce newcomers to Terraform and show them how to deploy an AWS EKS cluster with it.
Terraform blog post
This example is a more in-depth look at deploying an opinionated kubernetes cluster with
Terraform. It has a partnered blog post as well, available
