The first step to start using Space Cloud is setting it up. Space Cloud requires several components to be running for proper functions. The most important components are:

  • Gateway: Responsible for ingress traffic and generation of REST / GaphQL APIs
  • Runner: Responsible for intra-cluster traffic and policy enforcement
  • Container Registry: Responsible for storing docker images. We won’t be needing this for local setup.

Luckily, we don’t have to interact with these components directly. Space Cloud ships with a utility named space-cli which bootstraps a cluster for us.
