This workshop has been deprecated and archived. The new Amazon EKS Workshop is now available at www.eksworkshop.com.
ArgoCD is composed of three mains components:
API Server: Exposes the API for the WebUI / CLI / CICD Systems
Repository Server: Internal service which maintains a local cache of the git repository holding the application manifests
Application Controller: Kubernetes controller which controls and monitors applications continuously and compares that current live state with desired target state (specified in the repository). If a
OutOfSync is detected, it will take corrective actions.
All those components could be installed using a manifest provided by the Argo Project:
kubectl create namespace argocd kubectl apply -n argocd -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/argoproj/argo-cd/v2.4.7/manifests/install.yaml
To interact with the
API Server we need to deploy the CLI:
sudo curl --silent --location -o /usr/local/bin/argocd https://github.com/argoproj/argo-cd/releases/download/v2.4.7/argocd-linux-amd64 sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/argocd
