Let’s create a Virtual Kubernetes cluster with ArgoCD installed in it in just 90 seconds with Klusternetes(KNTS)
Argo CD is a declarative, GitOps continuous delivery tool for Kubernetes. It automates the deployment of the desired application states in the specified target environments. Application deployments can track updates to branches, tags, or pinned to a specific version of manifests at a Git commit.
Klusternetes is a platform that allows you to create a Kubernetes cluster in a few seconds. It also provides some of the leading DevOps tools as add-ons while creating your Cluster and provides a Service URL for add-ons that have UI.
Login to the klusternetes App. If you don’t have an account in the Klusternetes app check here to create one.
Click on “Add cluster” in the top right corner which will lead you to a cluster creation page. Fill in the necessary fields and select a medium cluster and click next.
It will lead you to the Features page, go to the CICD section, and select Argo cd. Here comes the best feature of Klusternetes, we can edit the configuration of the add-ons. So, now click on “Edit configuration.”

After editing the config as you want click on the “Save configureation” button and then click on the “Submit” Button.
That’s it, you created a Klusternetes cluster with Argo cd installed in it. Now you can download the kubeconfig of the cluster by clicking on the download button. It will show you the command’s to download.
You can get the download option even on your cluster list page. Click on “Done.” Now you will be on the main page of your account. Here is the list of clusters that you created and information about your cluster. You can even see the “Service URL.”
Click on the “+” icon near your cluster, you can see two columns one is for an overview of the cluster, and the other is for Add-on. you can get the Service URL in Add ons column.
Your pass will be the one you bcrypt hashed while creating. i.e “<your pass>”
So, that’s how you can spin up an Argo CD cluster within 90 Seconds. Klusternetes also provide a lot of add-ons and is easy to understand.
