On Plural (Beta)

Overview

Plural is a unified application deployment platform that makes it easy to run open-source software on Kubernetes. It aims to make applications as portable as possible, without sacrificing the ability for the users to own the applications they desire to use.

Getting Started

First, create an account on https://app.plural.sh. This is simply to track your installations and allow for the delivery of automated upgrades, you will not be asked to provide any infrastructure credentials or sensitive information.
Then, install the Plural CLI by following steps 1, 2, and 3 of the instructions here. Through this, you will also configure your cloud provider and the domain name under which your application will be deployed to.
Then create a fresh Git repo to store your Plural installation and from within the repo, run:
1
plural init
Copied!
This configures your installation and cloud provider for the repo. You're now ready to install Airbyte on your Plural repo!

Installing Airbyte

To install Airbyte on your Plural repo, simply run:
1
plural bundle install airbyte airbyte-aws
Copied!
Plural's Airbyte distribution currently has support for AWS, GCP and Azure set up and ready to go, so feel free to pick whichever best fits your infrastructure.
The CLI will prompt you to choose whether or not you want to use Plural OIDC, which means you're using Plural as your identity provider for SSO.
After this, run:
1
plural build
2
plural deploy --commit "deploying airbyte"
Copied!

Adding the Plural Console

To make management of your installation as simple as possible, we recommend installing the Plural Console. The console provides tools to manage resource scaling, receiving automated upgrades and getting out-of-the-box dashboarding and log aggregation. This can be done using the exact same process as above:
1
plural bundle install console console-aws
2
plural build
3
plural deploy --commit "deploying the console too"
Copied!

Accessing your Airbyte Installation

Now, just head over to airbyte.SUBDOMAIN_NAME.onplural.sh to access the Airbyte UI.

Accessing your Console Installation

To monitor and manage your Airbyte installation, head over to the Plural Console at console.YOUR_ORGANIZATION.onplural.sh (or whichever subdomain you chose).
