Zeus on Kubernetes with MacOS


Install Kubernetes command-line tool

  • Run the following command:

brew install kubectl

  • To verify that the version you’ve installed is up-to-date, run:

kubectl version

Install Minikube

Install Minikube v0.27.0

curl -Lo minikube && chmod +x minikube && sudo mv minikube /usr/local/bin/

Additional Steps with Docker

Install Docker

  • Install it using Hombrew:

brew cask install docker

  • Open and continue the installation of the network (Ctrl+Space)

Build the image

Build an image without uploading it:

  • Set the environment variables with

eval $(minikube docker-env)

  • Clone the Zeus packaging project:

git clone

  • Build the image with the Docker daemon of Minikube:

cd zeus-v3-package/zeus

mvn clean install

docker build -t zeus .

  • Set the image in the pod spec like the build tag: zeus

  • Set the imagePullPolicy to Never, otherwise Kubernetes will try to download the image

Important note: You have to run eval $(minikube docker-env) on each terminal you want to use, since it only sets the environment variables for the current shell session.
