Custom Addons

If you would like to have minikube properly start/restart custom addons, place the addon(s) .yaml you wish to be launched with minikube in the .minikube/addons directory. Addons in this folder will be moved to the minikube VM and launched each time minikube is started/restarted. Learn how to develop minikube addons.
