    Lightweight Kubernetes

    If you want to learn you should definitely do it. I run single node clusters all the time, it is a great way to repeatedly and quickly deploy services on anything that can provide a k8s api. Check out for a nice and easy kubernetes version and don't be afraid to start over. Make sure you store the manifests somewhere and you can get back to the point you were very quickly.

    Kubernetes IN Docker - local clusters for testing Kubernetes

    I was using docker, too. Then start playing around with kind. Then started to use helm charts and create ones myself. Then I've built a k3s cluster with a Jetson nano as a master and 3x RPi 4 w/ 8GB RAM. Still using Kind on my workstation to test things.
