We talked about Kubernetes in the past and it continues to be the default choice for deploying and managing containers in production clusters. However, it's getting increasingly difficult to provide a similar experience offline for developers. Among other options, we've found MicroK8s to be quite useful. To install the MicroK8s snap, pick a release channel (stable, candidate, beta or edge), and you can get Kubernetes running with a few commands. You can also keep track of mainstream releases and choose to upgrade your setup automatically.
