Installing the HKT CLI

To successfully deploy you will need a few tools installed and we'd recommend getting some environment variables created as well to make life easier.

Hydrolix uses Kubernetes and you will need the kubectl installed. You can check if they are installed by:

which kubectl

Hydrolix makes updates to the service and software regularly and it is advisable to check for the newest release. Release notes and previous versions can be found on the current release notes page

Create a K8's Namespace

Create a dedicated namespace in your Kubernetes Cluster:

kubectl create namespace $HDX_KUBERNETES_NAMESPACE

For ease of use, set your new namespace as a default:

kubectl config set-context --current --namespace="$HDX_KUBERNETES_NAMESPACE"

What’s Next

Congratulations that's the boring bit done! The next step is to deploy the platform! Huzzah!
