If the Brew Package Manager is installed, run:

brew install docker-machine-parallels

Otherwise:

curl -LO $(curl -s $r/releases/latest | grep -o 'http.*parallels' | head -n1) \
 && install docker-machine-driver-parallels /usr/local/bin/

Usage

Start a cluster using the parallels driver:

minikube start --vm-driver=parallels

To make parallels the default driver:

minikube config set vm-driver parallels

Issues
