  • 12GB RAM
  • 2 CPUs
  • 50GB disk space

Operating systems

MiniKF runs on all major operating systems:

  • Linux

  • Windows


Before installing MiniKF, you need to have Vagrant and VirtualBox installed on your laptop.

MiniKF installation

Open a terminal on your laptop, create a new directory, switch into it, and run the following commands to install MiniKF:

vagrant init arrikto/minikf
vagrant up

MiniKF will take a few minutes to boot. When this is done, navigate to and follow the on-screen instructions to start Kubeflow and Rok.

MiniKF upgrade

Here are step-by-step instructions for upgrading from a previous version:

  1. Upgrade the MiniKF box to the latest version:
    vagrant box update
  2. Ensure you have updated to the latest version:
    vagrant box list
  3. Upgrade the vagrant-persistent-storage plugin to v0.0.47 or later:
    vagrant plugin update vagrant-persistent-storage
  4. Destroy the VM:
    vagrant destroy

    • [Linux/macOS] rm minikf-user-data.vdi
  6. Re-create your VM:
