Install SchemaHero

Learn how to install the SchemaHero kubectl plugin and the in-cluster Operator


Installing the kubectl plugin

The SchemaHero client component is packaged as a kubectl plugin and distributed through the krew package manager. If you don't already have krew installed, head over to the krew installation guide, follow the steps there and then come back here.

Install the SchemaHero client component using:

kubectl krew install schemahero

Note: This will not install anything to your cluster, it only places a single binary named kubectl-schemahero on your path.

Verify the installation by checking the version:

kubectl schemahero version

You should see the version of SchemaHero installed on your workstation (0.9.0 or similar).

Installing the in-cluster components

Once you have the kubectl plugin installed, we can install the SchemaHero in-cluster operator.

kubectl schemahero install

This will create a schemahero-system namespace, and deploy the SchemaHero oerpator. You can confirm that SchemaHero is installed by executing:

kubectl get pods -n schemahero-system

If everything is working properly, you should see 1 pod running, and the output will look similar to below:

NAME           READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
schemahero-0   1/1     Running   0          38s

Next Steps

Now that we have the client and cluster components running, we can proceed to connecting a database.
