Creating a Kubernetes environment
To create a Kubernetes environment in this chapter, we will use Minikube. We learned how to install Minikube in Chapter 2, Preparing a Kubernetes and Helm Environment.
Let's follow these steps to set up Kubernetes:
- Start your Kubernetes cluster by running the following command:
$ minikube start
- After a short amount of time, you should see a line in the output that resembles the following:
Done! kubectl is now configured to use 'minikube'
- Once the Minikube cluster is up and running, create a dedicated namespace for this chapter's exercise. Run the following command to create a namespace
$ kubectl create namespace chapter3
