Setting up Docker and Kubernetes
Before we get started, we’re going to set up a local Kubernetes cluster and Docker daemon so that we can build docker images and deploy them to a cluster. We’re going to use Docker’s desktop application as its the simplest way to get up and running.
Installing Docker for Mac
1) Visit the Docker store
Get Docker CE for Mac (Edge). This version ships with experimental Kubernetes support.
3) Install it!
4) Once it has finished installing, go to preferences and click on
Kubernetes. Then select the
Enable Kubernetes checkbox.
5) Once Docker has completed installing Kubernetes you can test that it is working by running the following in a terminal of your choice:
# Check that Kubernetes is running > kubectl get nodes NAME STATUS ROLES AGE VERSION docker-for-desktop Ready master 3d v1.9.6 # Check that Docker is running > docker -v Docker version 18.05.0-ce, build f150324
You now have everything you need to start playing around with Docker and Kubernetes!
