Using Skupper with Minikube

Prerequisites

Skupper requires cluster-external network access in order to form connections between clusters. Run minikube tunnel in the background to enable this access.

Make sure you run minikube tunnel with the same kubeconfig and Minikube profile you used for minikube start. In the Hello World example, the tunnel is required only for the cluster containing the West namespace.

Console for West
export KUBECONFIG=$HOME/.kube/config-west
minikube tunnel

Logging in

Minikube does not offer a dedicated login command, but you can re-run the minikube start command in each console you wish to configure.

Console for West
export KUBECONFIG=$HOME/.kube/config-west
minikube start
Console for East
export KUBECONFIG=$HOME/.kube/config-east
minikube start
