Community Cloud Pods not available

Hi all! I’m following the guide on Community Cloud Pods | Docs using the Open Source tier and the pods command just isn’t there, what I am missing? Thanks in advance

➜  manager git:(master) ✗ localstack pod

Try 'localstack --help' for help.

Error: No such command 'pod'.

Hi @victor , thanks for reporting this issue.

Can you please share the version of the CLI you’re using?

localstack --version

It should technically work if you upgrade to the latest release version of the CLI:

pip install --upgrade localstack localstack-ext

If that command doesn’t work, you could try installing one of our dev releases of the CLI package using the --pre flag (these are the nightly builds of the CLI, please be aware that they are under active development and may be unstable):

pip install --upgrade --pre localstack localstack-ext

Hope that helps - please keep us posted on how it goes. Thanks!

Hi and thanks for the reply. The version was already included in my post and it’s 1.4.0 and unfortunately upgrading to the latest version doesn’t work.
I’m not comfortable with using the unstable versions yet and ideally would like to stay within 1.4.x versions for now.

Apologies, had missed the version output in your first post. Thanks for the pointer.

We are actually in the process of releasing a new major version 2.0.0 this week (hopefully by tomorrow). Will ping you once the release version of the CLI package has been updated, so you can give it another try. :+1: Thanks for your help in resolving this.

A follow up question - is this pod saving/loading functionality via command line supposed to support localstack containers raised via docker-compose mechanism (as opposed to the containers raised by the localstack command line utility)?

And good luck with the release!

Hi @victor, pods functionalities are totally independent of the way you start LocalStack.
