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/tectonic-1.7.3-tectonic.2.tar.gz
tar xzvf tectonic-1.7.3-tectonic.2.tar.gz
cd tectonic

Run the Tectonic Installer for your platform:

For macOS users:

$ ./tectonic-installer/darwin/installer

For Linux users:

$ ./tectonic-installer/linux/installer

For Windows users, see this guide.

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

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.

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.

Step 3: Tectonic Console

Viewing deployment pods in 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 Tectonic Tutorials provide walk through instructions on getting started.
