Run OpenShift locally.
Minishift’s goal is to become the default choice for running a single-node OpenShift cluster on your local host. Either for evaluation purposes or for ongoing development.
Due to the fact that Minishift builds on OpenShift cluster up, Minishift’s focus lies on providing more value to the basic cluster up provisioning. This includes virtual machine creation and management, making it easier to configure OpenShift in precisely the way you want and providing useful shortcut commands for making your work easier.
The following sections give a high level overview of the envisioned features and how they fit into upcoming releases. Of course this is subject to change and actual version names might change as well, because semantic versioning is used to determine the final version name of a given release.
