Connect to Minikube

The easiest way connect to a Minikube cluster from inside a Porter bundle is to embed the certificates used to authenticate to your cluster inside your kubeconfig. Minikube can do that for you automatically with a configuration setting:

minikube config set embed-certs true

With that setting enabled, the next time you run minikube start, your kubeconfig will have the certificates embedded.

🚨 There is an open issue with using Minikube’s Docker daemon when building a bundle #1383. This article only describes how to use a Minikube kubeconfig inside a running bundle.
