View Logs From Previous Runs

Mar 22, 2021

With the v0.35.0 release of Porter, the logs generated when install/upgrade/invoke/uninstall is run are persisted. Now you can view logs from previous runs, which can come in handy when troubleshooting a deployment. You can view the logs from the most recent execution of a bundle with the porter logs command: $ porter logs -i whalegap executing install action from whalegap (installation: whalegap) Install WhaleGap /usr/local/bin/helm helm install --name whalegap ./charts/whalegap --replace --set image.

Set Bundle Metadata on Build and Publish

Jan 14, 2021

With the v0.31.0 release of Porter you can now quickly set metadata on your bundle. This corrects confusing terms around the OCI reference of the bundle (the location of a bundle in a registry). reference = registry/name:tag Reference: A bundle reference is the location of a published bundle. For example, ghcr.io/getporter/porter/porter-hello:v0.1.1. Previously this was called bundle tag. Until we release v1.0, Porter detects when you use the flags with the old meanings and fixes it for you.

Porter Has Joined the CNCF as a Sandbox Project

Sep 28, 2020

When Jeremy Rickard and I created Porter less than two years ago, we wanted to create a community-led project that would encourage collaboration across vendors to make Cloud Native Application Bundles (CNAB) accessible and maintainable. We want to continue to support that mission of vendor neutral independence while growing the community of practitioners who can use and contribute to Porter’s development. Today, the Porter Maintainers are happy to announce that Porter has been accepted as a CNCF Sandbox project.
