How to use Portainer with Kubernetes?

Linode Staff

I am looking for Portainer to be deployed by default with my LKE cluster (I like the UI much more than the kubernetes dashboard).

Any ideas as to how I would get this deployed when the LKE cluster is getting created?

I just need to run these two commands during the cluster startup and with nodeport the user can access the UI:

kubectl create namespace portainer
kubectl apply -n portainer -f

So far the only things I've been able to find that relates to this topic is:

This documentation by Portainer itself, and This guide which includes steps for deploying Portainer via docker on a Linode.

Hope that helps :)

Portainer now has specific documentation for deployment on Linode's LKE service here:
