glooctl demo federation

glooctl demo federation

Bootstrap a multicluster demo with Gloo Federation.


Running the Gloo Federation demo setup locally requires 4 tools to be installed and accessible via the PATH: glooctl, kubectl, docker, and kind. This command will bootstrap 2 kind clusters, one of which will run the Gloo Federation management-plane as well as Gloo Enterprise, and the other will just run Gloo. Please note that cluster registration will only work on darwin and linux OS.
