Check the requirements doc to see what's needed. The short version:
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_1.6.8-tectonic.1.tar.gz tar xzvf tectonic-1.6.8-tectonic.1.tar.gz cd tectonic
Run the Tectonic Installer for your platform:
For macOS users:
For Linux users:
For Windows users, see this guide.
A browser window will open to begin the GUI installation process.
Follow the on-screen instructions to provision your cluster. This process should take about 10-15 minutes.
When prompted, click Download assets to save all assets generated during the Tectonic Installer process. These assets include configuration files that will allow you to repeat your cluster set up manually, and the terraform.tfstate file, which is required to delete your cluster, when desired.
Once complete click Go to my Tectonic Console to launch the Console, and begin interacting with your cluster.
If you encounter any errors check the troubleshooting documentation.
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 Tectonic Tutorials provide walk through instructions on getting started.
