This has been tested on Google Kubernetes Engine - it should work with other cluster types, but if you run into problems open an issue.

Deploy a Basic TerriaMap Instance

From within TerriaMap...

kubectl create serviceaccount tiller --namespace kube-system
kubectl apply -f deploy/kubernetes/rbac-config.yaml
helm init --service-account tiller
helm upgrade --install -f deploy/helm/example-prod.yml terria deploy/helm/terria

Config Customization

You can customize TerriaMap through helm by either modifying example-prod or creating your own helm config file. Server config is available at terriamap.serverConfig, init config at terriamap.initConfig and client config at terriamap.clientConfig. Changes that you make will be merged with the default values in deploy/terria/charts/terriamap/values.yaml.

Building Your Own Image

You can build your own TerriaMap image by changing the key in package.json, then running npm run docker-build-prod.

Working Locally

If you want to run a local version of TerriaMap then you can use minikube.

minikube start
eval $(minikube docker-env)

helm init
helm repo add incubator
helm repo update
helm install --name docker-registry -f deploy/helm/docker-registry.yml stable/docker-registry
helm install --name kube-registry-proxy -f deploy/helm/kube-registry-proxy.yml incubator/kube-registry-proxy

npm run docker-build-local

helm upgrade --install -f deploy/helm/example-prod.yml terria deploy/helm/terria

This will set you up with helm on your local minikube instance, install a local docker registry that will be pushed to with npm run docker-build-local and then installs a chart for terria that will use that docker image. You can keep running npm run docker-build-local and deleting the terria-server pod to update it. Keep in mind that you have to run npm run gulp to rebuild each time you redeploy. You can modify or copy example-prod.yml to change the config.
