Add on: Portainer

Homepage: https://www.portainer.io/
From MicroK8s version: 1.20+
Supported arch: amd64, arm64

Portainer allows you to “build, manage and deploy containers in your Kubernetes environment quickly and easily. No more CLI, no more YAML, no more Kubernetes manifests. Just simple, fast, K8s configuration in a graphical UI, built on a trusted open source platform.”

To enable the addon:

microk8s enable portainer

You will now find the Portainer exposed as a Nodeport http service on port 30777 and as an https service on port 30779. To access it remember to use the IP address or FQDN of the node MicroK8s is running on. Use localhost if you are deploying Portainer on your local workstation.
