Usually in a production cluster setup you will have multiple master and worker nodes on separate machines. 💪🏼
But what if you want to test something on your local machine or try something out? Setting up the whole cluster would be difficult or even impossible. 🤨
For that use case you can use minikube: a ONE Node cluster, where the master and worker processes are on the same machine.
Kubectl, the command line tool for Kubernetes, then enables the interaction with the cluster: to create pods, services and other components.
In the below video I’ll explain everything in more detail with animations and show a demo of installing these components and start the minikube cluster.
