Deploying Kelda to a Private Cluster
Estimated Time: 15 minutes
The public demo cluster is great for example applications, but you’ll need your own Kelda cluster to work on private code.
Run the following command to download and install Kelda.
curl -fsSL 'https://kelda.io/install.sh' | sh
- Create the Kubernetes cluster that Kelda will run on
Don’t want to create a Kubernetes cluster? Try out Hosted Kelda and skip straight to configuring Kelda.
We recommend a cluster 3 times the size of your development laptop.
Create the cluster using one of the options here.
- Point your local kubeconfig at the cluster
If you successfully created your Kubernetes cluster, it should show up under
kubectl config get-contexts.
Switch to the proper context with
kubectl config use-context <context name>.
As a sanity check, make sure that
kubectl get nodes doesn’t error.
- Deploy the Kelda Minion
The Kelda CLI communicates with the Kelda minion, which in turn communicates with the Kubernetes API to manage your development namespace.
Run the following command to deploy the Minion to the cluster you created in step 1.
If you’ve been provided a customer license for Kelda..Download the license, and run
kelda setup-minion --license <path to license>instead.
- Confirm that everything installed successfully
If everything installed successfully, running
Should show something like
local version: 0.14.2 minion version: 0.14.2
Congratulations! You’ve now setup your own instance of Kelda that can be used to run your applications. Check out the configuration documentation to learn how to start developing on your own application.
