This is a simple boilerplate that allows you to quickly set up a Magda instance.
Before you start you need to get a Kubernetes cluster. If you just want to give this a try locally, you can use Docker for Desktop on MacOS or Windows, or Minikube on Linux. Either way make sure the VM has at least 2 CPUs and 4gb of RAM. Alternatively you can run this in the cloud - we use Google Kubernetes Engine.
Fork this repository - this means you can make your own customisations, but still pull in updates.
git cloneit to your local machine open a terminal in the directory
Look at config.yaml and make sure to customise the uncommented lines. Everything else can be left as default for now.
Make sure your
kubectlis connected to your kubernetes cluster and install helm
kubectl create serviceaccount --namespace kube-system tiller kubectl create clusterrolebinding tiller-cluster-rule --clusterrole=cluster-admin --serviceaccount=kube-system:tiller helm init --service-account tiller
- Run the create secrets script in a command line and follow the prompts
./create-secrets/index-linux # OR ./create-secrets/index-macos # OR create-secrets\index.win.exe
Output should look something like so:
magda-create-secrets tool ? Are you creating k8s secrets for google cloud or local testing cluster? Local Testing Kubernetes Cluster ? Which local k8s cluster environment you are going to connect to? docker ? Do you need to access SMTP service for sending data request email? YES ? Please provide SMTP service username: abc ? Please provide SMTP service password: def ? Do you want to create google-client-secret for oAuth SSO? NO ? Do you want to create facebook-client-secret for oAuth SSO? NO ? Do you want to manually input the password used for databases? Generated password: up3Saeshusoequoo ? Specify a namespace or leave blank and override by env variable later? YES (Specify a namespace) ? What's the namespace you want to create secrets into (input `default` if you want to use the `default` namespace)? default ? Do you want to allow environment variables (see --help for full list) to override current settings at runtime? YES (Any environment variable can ove ride my settings) ? Do you want to connect to kubernetes cluster to create secrets now? YES (Create Secrets in Cluster now) Successfully created secret `smtp-secret` in namespace `default`. Successfully created secret `db-passwords` in namespace `default`. Successfully created secret `auth-secrets` in namespace `default`. All required secrets have been successfully created!
- Add the magda chart repo to helm
helm repo add magda-io https://charts.magda.io
- Install magda
helm upgrade magda magda-io/magda --wait --timeout 30000 --install -f config.yaml --devel
This will take a while for it to get everything set up. If you want to watch progress, run
kubectl get pods -w in another terminal.
- Once helm is finished, run
kubectl get services -wand wait for
gatewayto receive an external IP. It'll look something like this on kubectl or docker for desktop. Note that minikube doesn't support this, you'll just have to run
minikube ipand keep refreshing it with the node port below until it comes up.
gateway LoadBalancer 10.102.57.74 123.456.789.123 80:31519/TCP 1m
At this point you should be able to go to
http://<external ip> in your browser and see the Magda UI. Note that the search won't work until it's finished indexing regions - to see the progress of this, run
kubectl logs -f -lservice=indexer. Unless you've got a lot of processing power this will take quite a while - sorry! We're working on making it better.
By default, data.gov.au will be crawled on startup so you'll start with some data.
