In this chapter, we will look at how to get a local Kubernetes installation up and running using Minikube. Once we have our local Kubernetes installation running, we will work through some of the basic functionality and discuss the limitations of running Kubernetes locally. We will work through installing Kubernetes on:
- macOS 10.13 High Sierra
- Windows 10 Professional
- Ubuntu 17.04
Before we start the installation, let's quickly take a look at the tool we will be using to deploy our local Kubernetes cluster.
