An application is a software that runs its processing logic and data storage between 2 different systems: client-side and server-side. Some processing occurs on an end user’s local hardware, such as a desktop or mobile device, and others on a remote server.

In Taikun, you can find more than 200 public and private repositories, which you can import with the Helm Repo URL.

How to install an Application in a cluster

Enable required repositories for your application #

repositories

Create a catalog for adding applications and binding projects #

catalog des
  • When creating a catalog in Taikun, it’s essential to provide a clear description of the catalog and the applications it contains
  • Only applications whose repositories have been enabled will be visible
  • To ensure a successful installation, it is recommended only to bind Projects that are healthy and in a ready state
  • Parameter configurations can easily be located by browsing or searching applications within Taikun
  • When installing an application, it is possible to specify a version or use the latest version automatically
  • If the parameters are set to be both editable when installing and after installation, it is mandatory to configure them before proceeding with the installation

Install the application in the cluster #

install app
  • In the Instance name, only alphanumeric characters are allowed
  • Multiple projects can be bound to any catalog. When installing, a list of bonded projects will be visible
  • Custom Namespace can be input
  • If autosync is enabled, applications will automatically sync whenever any updates are made
  • Selected parameters can be added/removed while installing applications. Only parameters that are set as “Editable when installing” can have their values changed during installation
  • Extra values can be added to the application during installation

After installation #

After installing the application, users can find the status of the application in
catalogs ➡ select user catalog ➡ select installed application ➡ projects 

installed apps
  • Inside the application, basic details, parameters, and default values can be found
  • Parameters can be edited and applications can be synced again
  • Different versions of applications can be selected, note that users can only select the latest version, not an older one
  • A catalog can only be deleted if it is empty and has no applications or projects attached, otherwise, it cannot be deleted if a project is bound to it and an application has been added

Find all installed applications #

project apps
  • In the Applications section, you can find a list of all installed applications with information such as namespace, catalog name, and bound projects
  • It is possible to directly uninstall any of the installed applications from this section

Explore the applications #

In this section, one can find a list of all installed applications whose repositories are currently enabled. This allows for easy access and management of these applications, including the ability to directly uninstall them if needed
