Local Kubernetes setup on macOS with minikube on VirtualBox and local Docker registry


Minikube requires that VT-x/AMD-v virtualization is enabled in BIOS. To check that this is enabled on OSX / macOS run:

sysctl -a | grep machdep.cpu.features | grep VMX

If there's output, you're good!

One liners for CLI asset servers

Https / Http2


macOS: brew install caddy

caddy --conf=<( echo -e ':8080\ntls self_signed' )

Make sure to use https://, otherwise you'll download a.. download file. Since it's self signed, you'll need to ignore any security warnings in order to continue.

Feeling homeSync? Sync your home dir to a git repo with launchd every 30 minutes (macOS)

Feeling homeSync?

  1. Place and homeSync.plist in your home dir
  2. It's recommended to place the .gitignore in your home dir as well, to prevent checking in all your things :)

After doing that, run the following commands in ~/.

cd ~
git init
git remote add origin <https://your/git/repo.git>

Private ÐApps - Embark + IPFS (MacOS)

Private ÐApps

With these instructions, you can test a fully local and private ÐApp. Obviously it's not distributed into the cloud here, so it's more like a .. PApp? But we do simulate the full stack locally, so you can push changes to your hearts content!

Prerequisites (software)

  • Node.js (brew install node)
  • IPFS (brew install ipfs)
  • Embark (npm i -g embark)
  • TestRPC (npm i -g ethereumjs-testrpc)
