microk8s

#1

MicroK8s is a kubernetes cluster delivered as a single snap package, and can be installed on any Linux distribution supported by snaps (https://snapcraft.io/microk8s). MicroK8s is small and simple to install, and is a great way to stand up a cluster quickly for development and testing. Try it on your laptop!

snap install microk8s --classic

Alternatively, set the channel to install a specific upstream release series:

snap install microk8s --classic --channel=1.13/stable
