Installing Che on Minikube

This article explains how to create a single-node Kubernetes cluster with Minikube to deploy Che.

Remember that single-node Kubernetes clusters are suited only for testing or development. Do NOT use such clusters to run Che for organizations or developer teams.
  1. Start Minikube with required add-ons and sufficient resources:

    $ minikube start --addons=ingress,dashboard --vm=true --memory=10240 --cpus=4 --disk-size=50GB --kubernetes-version=v1.23.9
  2. Create the Che instance:

    $ chectl server:deploy --platform minikube
Verification steps
  1. Verify the Che instance status:

    $ chectl server:status
  2. Navigate to the Che cluster instance:

    $ chectl dashboard:open
