Create a K8s only image

Is it possible for tele build to build a tar file of just a working, basic K8s node with no Apps? If so, how can this be accomplished?

@mmellin yes this is definitely possible.

You can take a look at https://github.com/gravitational/gravity/tree/master/assets/telekube/resources which is effectively an empty application we build with each release. It does have some unneeded parts that we use for AWS integrations that can be stripped down further, but otherwise it’s an empty kubernetes cluster.

Also, you don’t have to build an empty cluster image yourself using tele, we build and publish a reference image with each gravity release. So you can just do tele ls to list available images, and tele pull <image>:<version> to download the empty app we publish, and use that as the installer for a basic K8s node.
