Minikube Setup

Prerequisites: prepare your local environment#

Before you can complete the installation you must install and prepare the following dependencies on your local machine:

Launch a Minikube Cluster#

Before we deploy katonic, we will use Minikube to emulate a cluster on your machine. We will also need to provide the resources for katonic to be able to run. Use the following command to start Minikube accordingly:

minikube start --cni=calico --driver=none --kubernetes-version=1.19.11

NOTE: Make sure your Minikube cluster is running Kubernetes version 1.19 or earlier

Check your Minikube cluster is Running#

Before you continue with the installation, check that your Minikube cluster was started successfully by running the minikube status:

minikube status

The response for the above command should be:

host: Running
kubelet: Running
apiserver: Running
kubeconfig: Configured


Congratulations, you have now set up a working Minikube cluster! You can now use Kustomize to finish the setup and get the cluster ready to be used for deploying the katonic app or running katonic jobs.

Follow this guide to complete the setup.

Advanced Information#

Stop the Cluster#

When you want to close down your Minikube deployment of katonic and free up your resources use the following command:

minikube stop

Delete the Cluster#

If you would like to delete the cluster and remove all the traces of the katonic deployment use the following command:

minikube delete
