Known Issue(https://github.com/oam-dev/kubevela/issues/625): If you're using mac, it will report that “vela” cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified.
The new version of MacOS is stricter about running software you've downloaded that isn't signed with an Apple developer key. And we haven't supported that for KubeVela yet.
You can open your 'System Preference' -> 'Security & Privacy' -> General, click the 'Allow Anyway' to temporarily fix it.
You can enable this feature by installing a minimal Flux v2 chart as below:
Or you could install full Flux v2 following its own guide of course.
Checking available application components and traits by
vela CLI tool:
These capabilities are built-in so they are ready to use if showed up. KubeVela is designed to be programmable and fully self-service, so the assumption is more capabilities will be added later per your own needs.
Also, whenever new capabilities are added in the platform, you will immediately see them in above output.
See the advanced installation guide to learn more about installation details.
