Deploying locally

For researchers

If you are a researcher and would like to try out deploying a small REANA cluster on your laptop, you can proceed as follows.

1. Install docker, kubectl, kind, and helm dependencies:

$ firefox
$ firefox
$ firefox
$ firefox

2. Deploy REANA cluster:

$ wget
$ kind create cluster --config kind-localhost-30443.yaml
$ wget
$ sh
$ helm repo add reanahub
$ helm repo update
$ helm install reana reanahub/reana --namespace reana --create-namespace --wait

3. Create REANA admin user:

$ wget
$ sh reana reana mysecretpassword

4. Log into your REANA instance:

$ firefox https://localhost:30443

5. Follow instructions displayed on the web page to run your first REANA analysis example.

For developers

If you are a developer and would like to work with REANA cluster source code, you can proceed as follows.

Set up virtual environment and install reana-dev helper script:

$ mkdir ~/src && cd ~/src
$ virtualenv ~/.virtualenvs/reana
$ source ~/.virtualenvs/reana/bin/activate
(reana) $ pip install git+git://

Fork and clone all REANA source code repositories:

(reana) $ reana-dev git-fork --help
(reana) $ eval "$(reana-dev git-fork -c ALL)"
(reana) $ reana-dev git-clone -c ALL -u johndoe

Create a new REANA cluster:

(reana) $ reana-dev cluster-create

Build all components:

(reana) $ reana-dev cluster-build

Deploy REANA:

(reana) $ reana-dev cluster-deploy \
            --admin-email \
            --admin-password mysecretpassword

Run an example:

(reana) $ reana-dev run-example -c reana-demo-helloworld
