Tekton Completion

If you are using a *nix-based operating system such as Linux or macOS, you can also install the autocompletion scripts. This will let you use <tab> to complete various commands.

To see how you can install the autocompletion tools, you can run the following command:

In Linux

$ tkn completion bash > /etc/bash_completion.d/tkn

In Mac

$ tkn completion bash > /usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d/tkn

Tekton Dashboard

If you want to use the graphical user interface (GUI) for Tekton, you can install it by applying the YAML file for the latest release on your cluster, as follows:

$ kubectl apply --filename https://github.com/tektoncd/dashboard/releases/latest/download/tekton-dashboard-release.yaml

Once the pods are started and running, you can open a port to access the dashboard directly using the following command:

$ kubectl --namespace tekton-pipelines port-forward svc/tekton-dashboard 9097:9097

You can now open up your browser at http://localhost:9097, and you will see Tekton Dashboard, as shown in the following screenshot:

Note: you will see fewer options in left side menu. when we install child projects of the tekton then you can see more options. (will see in future blogs.)
