A minikube add-on is an extension or plugin that adds additional functionality or features to the minikube tool. Minikube is a command-line tool that allows developers to set up and run a single-node Kubernetes cluster locally on their machines.


Add-ons are used to enhance the capabilities of the minikube cluster by providing extra functionalities such as enabling a container registry, enabling a dashboard, adding DNS addons, enabling metrics-server for monitoring, or enabling a specific storage class, a**** others. These add-ons can be enabled or disabled based on the requirements of the development environment.

Minikube add-ons are essentially optional features or components that can be enabled to extend the functionality of your local Kubernetes cluster. These add-ons allow users to customize their minikube environment with additional tools or services to support specific use cases or requirements. Examples of common minikube add-ons include features related to networking, monitoring, security, logging, storage, and more. By enabling add-ons, users can tailor their minikube setup to better suit their development or testing needs.
