MicroK8s setup for Cilium

Set up microk8s with Cilium for development

Microk8s is a Canonical project to provide a kubernetes environment for local development, similar to minikube but without requiring a separate VM to manage. These instructions describe setting it up for common development use cases with Cilium and may be helpful in particular for testing BPF kernel extensions with Cilium.

Microk8s will run its own version of docker for the kubernetes runtime, so if you have an existing docker installation then this may be confusing, for instance when building images the image may be stored with one of these installations and not the other. This guide assumes you will run both docker daemon instances, and use your existing docker-ce for building Cilium while using the microk8s.docker daemon instance for the runtime of your kubernetes pods.
