Install eksctl

For this workshop you will use eksctl. Once you install eksctl, you will be ready to get started.

At the terminal command prompt, enter the following two commands:

curl --silent --location "$(uname -s)_amd64.tar.gz" | tar xz -C /tmp && \
sudo mv /tmp/eksctl /usr/local/bin

This will install eksctl in your Cloud9 environment. To test to make sure the command is installed properly, execute the command:

eksctl get cluster

You should get a “No clusters found” message.

eksctl version

For the current workshops, we will be using eksctl 0.19-rc.1 or newer. Please verify the version, as some features are only available in the 0.19 version of eksctl
