Telepresence supports locally mounting of volumes that are mounted to your Pods. You can specify a command to run when starting the intercept, this could be a subshell or local server such as Python or Node.
telepresence intercept <mysvc> --port <port> --mount=/tmp/ -- /bin/bash
In this case, Telepresence creates the intercept, mounts the Pod's volumes to locally to
/tmp, and starts a Bash subshell.
Telepresence can set a random mount point for you by using
--mount=true instead, you can then find the mount point in the output of
telepresence list or using the
$ telepresence intercept <mysvc> --port <port> --mount=true -- /bin/bashUsing Deployment <mysvc>interceptedIntercept name : <mysvc>State : ACTIVEWorkload kind : DeploymentDestination : 127.0.0.1:<port>Volume Mount Point: /var/folders/cp/2r22shfd50d9ymgrw14fd23r0000gp/T/telfs-988349784Intercepting : all TCP connectionsbash-3.2$ echo $TELEPRESENCE_ROOT/var/folders/cp/2r22shfd50d9ymgrw14fd23r0000gp/T/telfs-988349784
With either method, the code you run locally either from the subshell or from the intercept command will need to be prepended with the
$TELEPRESENCE_ROOT environment variable to utilize the mounted volumes.
For example, Kubernetes mounts secrets to
/var/run/secrets/kubernetes.io (even if no
mountPoint for it exists in the Pod spec). Once mounted, to access these you would need to change your code to use
