EinStack provides you with an official flexible Helm chart to install Glide into a Kubernetes cluster.

Before moving on, please make sure you have Helm CLI and kubectl installed locally.


Add EinStack chart repository

helm repo add einstack https://einstack.github.io/helm-charts
helm repo update

Create a Kubernetes Secret

Before installing the Helm chart, you need to create a Kubernetes secret with your API keys like:

kubectl create secret generic api-keys --from-literal=OPENAI_API_KEY=sk-abcdXYZ

By default, Glide’s chart comes with a configuration that contains one language router with one OpenAI model that requires to put API key under the OPENAI_API_KEY environment variable.


Use the Secret

Then, you need to create a custom values.yaml file to override the secret name like:

# save as custom.values.yaml, for example
    apiKeySecret: "api-keys"

Deploy Glide's chart 🚀

Finally, you should be able to install Glide’s chart via:

helm upgrade glide-gateway einstack/glide --values custom.values.yaml --install

Please make sure your kubectl context is pointing to the right cluster and authenticated to do the deployment.

Once the deployment is done, you should be able to see a new glide-gateway deployment and corresponding pods in the namespace you used during the deployment.
