Quick Setup



# dowload latest craft binary from releases and extract 
curl -L https://github.com/salesforce/craft/releases/download/0.1.7/craft.tar.gz | tar -xz -C /tmp/

# move to a path that you can use for long term
sudo mv /tmp/craft /usr/local/craft
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/craft/bin

Instead of having to add to PATH everytime you open a new terminal, we can add our path to PATH permanently.

$ sudo vim /etc/paths

Add the line "/usr/local/craft/bin" at the end of the file and save the file.

Create a CRAFT Application

From the command line, cd into a directory where you'd like to store your CRAFT application and run this command:

craft init

This will initiate a CRAFT application in your current directory and create the following skeleton files:

  • controller.json: This file holds Custom Resource Definition (CRD) information like group, domain, operator image, and reconciliation frequency.
  • resource.json: This file contains the schema information for validating inputs while creating the CRD.
