Astro dev init needed?

Do we need to do astro dev init to create airflow subdirectories in a k8s that is already running astronomer? Since astro-UI is accessible, but don’t really understand where to create the dags folder structure in this context.

Yes, if you did not have a astronomer repository setup already, you will need to run the init command.

astro dev init

From there, you will get a dags directory where you can put your DAGs.

Locally, when you start a local deployment, the dags directory will be mounted onto the scheduler and webserver container.

You can use the following commands to start/stop/kill a local deployment.

astro dev start
astro dev stop
astro dev kill
