Calyptia CLI

One of the easiest ways to install on top of Kubernetes is to use the Calyptia CLI. The Calyptia CLI allows you to manage, operate, and create multiple core instances. Before getting started, you need to ensure the following two requirements are fulfilled
Check that the current Kubernetes context is configured to the cluster you wish to deploy in. You can run kubectl get nodes to check which cluster is in the current context
You need the proper token for authentication. This can be retrieved from the Calyptia Core home page > Create Core Instance > Calyptia CLI after filling out the name and tags you wish to use
