| sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

trusty spinnaker" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

Download the public PGP key:

curl -s -f https://bintray.com/user/downloadSubjectPublicKey?username=spinnaker\
| sudo apt-key add -

Add preferences file for apt to retrieve the correct packages:

curl -s -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/imosquera/spinnaker/master/etc/apt/preferences.d/0.61.0/spinnaker \
| sudo tee  /etc/apt/preferences.d/spinnaker

Add the Open JDK PPA:

Update apt to download the new metadata information about the Spinnaker packaging:

sudo apt-get update

Install Spinnaker and it’s dependencies:

apt-get install --allow-unauthenticated spinnaker

Start Spinnaker!

sudo service spinnaker start

Go to http://${PUBLIC_IP}:9000 on the host machine and you should see the Spinnaker screen greeting you. If you need to find your public IP of the box exec the following:

curl https://ifconfig.co/

You should now see the Spinnaker greeting page
Spinnaker homepage

From here you’ll need to configure Spinnaker. There are a few steps you’ll need to complete:

  1. Set up Spinnaker
  2. We suggest that you use Elasticache from AWS or if you would like you can [set up Redis] (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-redis-on-ubuntu-16-04) on your own.
  3. [Use Redis as the backend] for Front50 (http://www.spinnaker.io/docs/front50-cassandra-to-s3)
