We stand in solidarity with the Black community.

Racism is unacceptable.

It conflicts with the core values of the Kubernetes project and our community does not tolerate it.

Kind Cluster

This only cover the basics to use a kind cluster. You can find more details at kind documentation.


You can follow this to install kind.

Create a Cluster

You can simply create a kind cluster by

kind create cluster

To customize your cluster, you can provide additional configuration. For example, the following is a sample kind configuration.

kind: Cluster
  - role: control-plane
  - role: worker
  - role: worker
  - role: worker

Using the configuration above, run the following command will give you a k8s v1.17.2 cluster with 1 control-plane node and 3 worker nodes.

kind create cluster --config hack/kind-config.yaml --image=kindest/node:v1.17.2

You can use --image flag to specify the cluster version you want, e.g. --image=kindest/node:v1.17.2, the supported version are listed here.

Load Docker Image into the Cluster

When developing with a local kind cluster, loading docker images to the cluster is a very useful feature. You can avoid using a container registry.

kind load docker-image your-image-name:your-tag

See Load a local image into a kind cluster for more information.

Delete a Cluster

kind delete cluster
