The Kubefirst Platform now supports 3 installation types

Kubefirst Local (GitHub Only)

This is the fastest way to check out the kubefirst platform. This installation type will automatically create a local k3d cluster on your laptop, put a gitops repository in your personal GitHub account, and bootstrap the local cluster against that new repository. You will be able to run gitops deployments, build images, publish helm charts, and even run automated infrastructure as code, all without a cloud account or a domain requirement.

Kubefirst on AWS (GitHub or GitLab)

Our AWS cloud platform supports both GitHub and GitLab as git providers.

If you choose GitLab, your Git Provider will be self-hosted, meaning Kubefirst will install GitLab into your newly created kubernetes cluster. If you choose GitHub, the Kubefirst platform will leverage the free GitHub system at
