wf local up

wf local up

Brings up wayfinder on a local kubernetes cluster


Bootstrap provides an experimental means of bootstrapping a local Wayfinder installation. At present the local installation uses "kind"

Unless specified otherwise, it will deploy an official tagged release from Github, though this can be overridden using the --release flag. Note the installation is performed via Helm with a local ${HOME}/.wayfinder/values.yaml generated in the directory. If you wish to change any of the values post installation, update the values.yaml file and re-run the 'up' command.

Note the data persistence is tied to the installation provider. For kind, as long as the container is not delete the data is kept.
