Get started with Krustlet in three easy steps:
- Boot a Kubernetes cluster
- Boot a Krustlet node
- Deploy your first application
As Krustlet is under active development, this guide will help you set up a cluster suitable for evaluation, development, and testing purposes.
Step 1: Boot a Kubernetes Cluster
There are many ways to boot up a Kubernetes cluster. You may choose to get up and running in cloud environments or locally on your laptop.
If you have already created a Kubernetes cluster, proceed to the next step to install Krustlet on your own Kubernetes cluster.
For production use:
Step 2: Boot a Krustlet Node
Depending on whatever provider you chose in step 1, you now have a few options to boot and register Krustlet with your Kubernetes cluster.
If you have your own Kubernetes cluster, you may want to follow the steps in the cloud-based option guides to determine how to set up Krustlet for your own infrastructure.
For production use, you’ll want to boot Krustlet on a device that can start a web server on an IP accessible from the Kubernetes control plane.
For testing/development environments:
Step 3: Deploy your First Application
If you just want to get started and see something running, go checkout any one
of the demos. Each of them has a prebuilt WebAssembly module
stored in a registry and a Kubernetes manifest that you can
