Minikube

Follow these instructions to install Space Cloud on Minikube.

Step 1: Install Minikube

Install the latest version of Minikube for Windows, Linux or macOS.

Start minikube:

minikube start --cpus=4 --memory=8096

Make sure you have kubectl installed.

Step 2: Install Istio

Space Cloud requires Istio to work correctly. The default Istio profile works perfectly well.

Make sure you have disabled istio-ingressgateway. Space Cloud configures and uses an internal ingress gateway.

For convenience, we have already made a YAML file to install istio for a local cluster.

kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/spaceuptech/space-cloud/master/install-manifests/kubernetes/local/istio.yaml

Wait for all the pods to start:

kubectl get pods -n istio-system --watch

Step 3: Install Space Cloud

To install Space Cloud, run the command:

kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/spaceuptech/space-cloud/master/install-manifests/kubernetes/local/space-cloud.yaml

Wait for all the pods to start:

kubectl get pods -n space-cloud --watch

Step 4: Open Mission Control

You should be able to access Mission Control on http://$(minikube ip):30122/mission-control

Set up port forwarding to access Mission Control on localhost:4122.

kubectl port-forward -n space-cloud service/gateway 4122:4122

You should be able to access Mission Control on http://localhost:4122/mission-control.

The default credentials are:

  • Username: admin
  • Key: 1234

You can change it by editing the ADMIN_USER and ADMIN_PASS env variables of the gateway deployment. You can find these towards the end of the space-cloud.yaml file.

Next Steps

Awesome! We just started Space Cloud using Kubernetes. Next step would be to set up a project to use Space Cloud in your preferred language.
