AWS: Installation

Preparation

Check the requirements doc to see what's needed. The short version:

Step 1: Download and run Tectonic Installer

Make sure a current version of either the Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browser is set as the default browser on the workstation where Installer will run.

Download the Tectonic installer.

wget https://releases.tectonic.com/releases/tectonic_1.5.7-tectonic.1.tar.gz
tar xzvf tectonic-1.5.7-tectonic.1.tar.gz
cd tectonic/tectonic-installer

Run the Tectonic Installer.

./$PLATFORM/installer

Where $PLATFORM is one of: linux, darwin or windows.

A browser window should open to begin the GUI installation process.

Entering AWS credentials in the Tectonic Installer

Step 2: Install

Be sure to read the installation requirements - which include a section on privileges for your AWS credentials - as well as the known issues section in the Troubleshooting guide before you install.

Follow the on-screen instructions to provision your cluster. This process should take about 10-15 minutes.

Once complete you should be able to access your Tectonic Console.

If you encounter any errors check the troubleshooting documentation.

Step 3: Tectonic Console

Viewing a node in the Tectonic Console

Now you are ready to access Tectonic Console, configure kubectl, and deploy your first application to the cluster. A kubeconfig with the appropriate configuration for kubectl is available for download in the Tectonic Console.

For those new to Tectonic and Kubernetes, the usage guide contains tutorials and guides demonstrating how to get started.
