Minikube is a tool that makes it easy to run Kubernetes locally. Minikube runs a single-node Kubernetes cluster inside a VM on your laptop for users looking to try out Kubernetes or develop with it day-to-day.

More details can be found at https://github.com/kubernetes/minikube

This scenario has explained how to launch a Single Node Kubernetes cluster. Using Minikube is ideal for development environments and testing Kubernetes locally.

Continue learning about Kubernetes by completing the other Katacoda scenarios.

Launch Single Node Kubernetes Cluster

Step 1 of 4

Step 1 - Start Minikube

Minikube has been installed and configured in the environment. Check that it is properly installed, by running the minikube version command:

minikube version

Start the cluster, by running the minikube start command:

minikube start --wait=false

Great! You now have a running Kubernetes cluster in your online terminal. Minikube started a virtual machine for you, and a Kubernetes cluster is now running in that VM.
