This is a quick guide to getting Kubernetes Installation with Minikube for macOS users. I will not explain what is docker or what is Kubernetes. There are tons of articles in Medium.

I didn’t have a plan to learn Kubernetes. Therefore, the DevOps team taught us Kubernetes, created their own NAMESPACE, and could continue to work with our environment.

This article is going to explain what I learned about Minikube and Kubernetes. How to use and create minikube in a local macOS machine. Thank you so much, guys.


The word of Kubernetes is in Greek. Meaning is the helmsman or pilot. In most sources, you can see Kubernetes written in k8s. This is because there are exactly 8 letters between the letters k and s. Kubernetes is a Container clustering tool that allows us to automatically deploy our existing containerized applications, manage and reduce their numbers with operations. The Kubernetes current version is 1.12. You can reach Github from the link below. https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes


  • First and foremost let’s install Docker. You can reach docker store from the link below. Don't forget run docker.
