Quick Start with KubeSphere


1. Install the Meshery command line client, mesheryctl .

Meshery is the open source, cloud native management plane that enables the adoption, operation, and management of Kubernetes, any service mesh, and their workloads.

This tutorial walks you through an example of deploying Meshery from the App Store of KubeSphere.


  • Please make sure you enable the OpenPitrix system.
  • You need to create a workspace, a project, and a user account (project-regular) for this tutorial. The account needs to be a platform regular user and to be invited as the project operator with the operator role. In this tutorial, you log in as project-regular and work in the project demo-project in the workspace demo-workspace. For more information, see Create Workspaces, Projects, Users and Roles.
