Quick Start

Who needs documentation, lets just run this thing!

Install

Get helm if you don't have it. Helm 3 is just a CLI and won't do bad insecure things to your cluster.

brew install helm

Install the Fleet Helm charts (there's two because we separate out CRDs for ultimate flexibility.)

helm -n fleet-system install --create-namespace --wait \
    fleet-crd https://github.com/rancher/fleet/releases/download/v0.3.3/fleet-crd-0.3.3.tgz
helm -n fleet-system install --create-namespace --wait \
    fleet https://github.com/rancher/fleet/releases/download/v0.3.3/fleet-0.3.3.tgz

Add a Git Repo to watch

Change spec.repo to your git repo of choice. Kubernetes manifest files that should be deployed should be in /manifests in your repo.

cat > example.yaml << "EOF"
apiVersion: fleet.cattle.io/v1alpha1
kind: GitRepo
metadata:
  name: sample
  # This namespace is special and auto-wired to deploy to the local cluster
  namespace: fleet-local
spec:
  # Everything from this repo will be ran in this cluster. You trust me right?
  repo: "https://github.com/rancher/fleet-examples"
  paths:
  - simple
EOF

kubectl apply -f example.yaml

Get Status

Get status of what fleet is doing

kubectl -n fleet-local get fleet

You should see something like this get created in your cluster.

kubectl get deploy frontend
NAME       READY   UP-TO-DATE   AVAILABLE   AGE
frontend   3/3     3            3           116m

Enjoy and read the docs.
