Docker driver (EXPERIMENTAL)

Overview

The Docker driver is an experimental VM-free driver that ships with minikube v1.7.

This driver was inspired by the kind project, and uses a modified version of its base image.

Special features

No hypervisor required when run on Linux.

Limitations

As an experimental driver, not all commands are supported on all platforms. Notably: mount, service, tunnel, and others. Most of these limitations will be addressed by minikube v1.8 (March 2020)

Issues

Troubleshooting

  • Run minikube start --alsologtostderr -v=1 to debug crashes
