LXD

We've taken some preliminary steps in providing the user better feedback when wanting to deploy onto the localhost provider. If conjure-up isn't able to talk to the same API endpoints Juju can then our probability of success is next to none. conjure-up dev summary: you like LXD? we like LXD. Put your floaties on and step up to the Helm! We do some fancy realtime UI updates so if you snap install lxd from another terminal conjure-up will automatically enable your localhost selection and allow you to proceed on. Also, we've extended our LXD support to allow you to select from known network bridges and storage pools. conjure-up dev summary: you like LXD? we like LXD.

Helm

Since enabling addons support last week we've been looking into other products to integrate on top of our Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes (CDK). It seemed appropriate to add a package manager for k8s. What's really nice about this is since we've enabled native cloud integration with AWS now Helm can easily take advantage of things like persistent storage when deploying applications such as databases. Getting Helm installed and ready to go is easy. Simply select it from our CDK spell addons: conjure-up dev summary: you like LXD? we like LXD. Put your floaties on and step up to the Helm! If needed, changing the Helm version you wish to install is available in our configuration screen: conjure-up dev summary: you like LXD? we like LXD. Put your floaties on and step up to the Helm! Once the deployment is complete you can start using Helm immediately with no additional configuration steps! conjure-up dev summary: you like LXD? we like LXD. Put your floaties on and step up to the Helm! You are now ready to go forth and install applications on top of your production grade Kubernetes :) Give it a try:
$ helm install stable/ghost
$ helm install stable/dokuwiki
