This repo is for the 1.x version of Linkerd. Feature development is now happening in the linkerd2 repo. This repo is currently only used for periodic maintenance releases of Linkerd 1.x.

Linkerd 1.x (pronounced "linker-DEE") acts as a transparent HTTP/gRPC/thrift/etc proxy, and can usually be dropped into existing applications with a minimum of configuration, regardless of what language they're written in. It works with many common protocols and service discovery backends, including scheduled environments like Nomad, Mesos and Kubernetes.

Linkerd is built on top of Netty and Finagle, a production-tested RPC framework used by high-traffic companies like Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, PagerDuty, and others.

Linkerd is hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

Want to try it?

We distribute binaries which you can download from the Linkerd releases page. We also publish Docker images for each release, which you can find on Docker Hub.

For instructions on how to configure and run Linkerd, see the 1.x user documentation on linkerd.io.
