The installer can support various add-ons. Removing an add-on from the spec will remove it from your installer. For a full list of supported add-ons and the advanced options they support see the advanced reference documentation.
apiVersion: cluster.kurl.sh/v1beta1 kind: Installer metadata: name: "my-installer" spec: kubernetes: version: "latest" docker: version: "latest" weave: version: "latest" rook: version: "latest" contour: version: "latest" kotsadm: version: "latest"
For add-ons that are using
version: "latest" this will be pinned to the latest version of the component that is supported by our installer. This means that when an update to the component is shipped, your installer will automatically be updated. This may be desirable in some scenarios, while other installers may want to have tested, locked and predictable installed versions. You can also list a specific (supported) version of an add on and it will be locked to that version.
The hash for a specific distro is immutable, each hash references a specific combination of components and versions. Mutable, vanity urls are available for Replicated customers as described below in Managing a kURL Installer.
kURL hosts a website where users can specify a kURL manifest. Creating a new distro can be as easy as selecting a few drop down components. Learn more
kURL hosts an API where users can POST a kURL manifest. Learn more
For example, if you create a Replicated account and then create an application named
SomeBigBank then your account's kURL installer will become
curl -sSL https://kurl.sh/somebigbank | bash. Beyond the vanity url, your Replicated team will be able to manage & update your new kURL distro as new add-ons or versions become available. Check out our overview for more information about using kURL with Replicated KOTS.
