To pull a Docker image from Minikube, you can follow these steps:

  1. Start Minikube by running the command: minikube start
  2. Set the Docker environment variables to use the Minikube Docker daemon by running the command: eval $(minikube docker-env) This sets the DOCKER_HOST, DOCKER_TLS_VERIFY, and DOCKER_CERT_PATH environment variables to use Minikube's Docker daemon.
  3. Build the Docker image you want to pull using the Minikube Docker daemon. For example: docker build -t my-image:latest . Replace my-image with the desired image name and tag, and . with the path to your Dockerfile if it's not in the current directory.
  4. Verify that the image is built and available in the Minikube Docker daemon by running the command: docker images You should see your image listed in the output.
  5. Now you can use the image in your Kubernetes manifests or deployments.


Note: If you want to pull an image directly from a registry, you don't need to use Minikube's Docker daemon. Simply specify the image URL in your Kubernetes manifests or deployments, and Kubernetes will pull the image from the registry during deployment.
