This section provides an overview of what openshift is, and why a developer might want to use it.
It should also mention any large subjects within openshift, and link out to the related topics. Since the Documentation for openshift is new, you may need to create initial versions of those related topics.
Getting started with an all-in-one container
To install openshift follow installation steps on https://install.openshift.com
Getting started with Minishift
Here is the documentation from openshift-origin and how to install it on any OS here
I’ll write doc for Debian-like OS with virtualbox driver since I did it on my laptop but it’s kind of a copy/paste from openshift website
# apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') virtualbox
Enable and start virtualbox
# systemctl enable virtualbox && \ systemctl start virtualbox
systemctl status virtualbox should show you an enabled & active service.
Download minishift & install binary
You can find all minishift releases here in case this one doesn’t exist anymore when you try the
# mkdir $HOME/minishift && \ wget -O $HOME/minishift/minishift.tar.gz https://github.com/minishift/minishift/releases/download/v1.0.0/minishift-1.0.0-linux-amd64.tgz && \ tar -xf $HOME/minishift/minishift.tar.gz -C $HOME/minishift
Add minishift command to $PATH
# echo "export PATH=\$PATH:$HOME/minishift" >> $HOME/.bashrc && \ source $HOME/.bashrc
minishift --helpshow all available options
# minishift start --vm-driver=virtualbox
Now you should have an openshift up and running
Export openshift client command to $PATH
This command should be installed when you run
minishift start if it is not present on the system.
Add it to $PATH for more comfort:
# echo "export PATH=\$PATH:$(find $HOME/.minishift -name oc -type f)" >> $HOME/.bashrc && \ source $HOME/.bashrc
Login to minishift
Note: You’ll have to accept unsecured ssl certificates
To connect with bash client :
# oc login -u system:admin https://$(minishift ip):8443
To connect with your default browser (login with developer:developer):
# minishift console
Finally your Openshift-origin-standalone for test/dev purposes is ready and accessible.
