Follow the instructions to install k3d on your system.
$ k3d cluster create epinio
Epinio has to connect to pods inside the cluster. The default installation uses the internal docker IP for this. If docker is running in a VM, e.g. with Docker Desktop for Mac, that IP will not be reachable.
As a workaround the IP of the host can be used instead, together with port-forwardings:
k3d cluster create epinio -p '80:80@server' -p '443:443@server'
After the command returns,
kubectl should already be talking to your new cluster:
$ kubectl get nodes NAME STATUS ROLES AGE VERSION k3d-epinio-server-0 Ready control-plane,master 38s v1.20.0+k3s2
Follow Installation using a MagicDNS Service to install Epinio in your test environment.
If k3d is inside a VM, in addition to the special k3d setup, explained above, use this system domain instead:
epinio install --system-domain=<YOUR-IP>.omg.howdoi.website
<YOUR-IP> can be found by running
ifconfig |grep "inet.*broadcast
To get the kube config to access the cluster:
k3d kubeconfig get epinio
