K3d image import

k3d image import

Import image(s) from docker into k3d cluster(s).

Synopsis

Import image(s) from docker into k3d cluster(s).

If an IMAGE starts with the prefix ‘docker.io/’, then this prefix is stripped internally. That is, ‘docker.io/rancher/k3d-tools:latest’ is treated as ‘rancher/k3d-tools:latest’.

If an IMAGE starts with the prefix ‘library/’ (or ‘docker.io/library/’), then this prefix is stripped internally. That is, ‘library/busybox:latest’ (or ‘docker.io/library/busybox:latest’) are treated as ‘busybox:latest’.

If an IMAGE does not have a version tag, then ‘:latest’ is assumed. That is, ‘rancher/k3d-tools’ is treated as ‘rancher/k3d-tools:latest’.

A file ARCHIVE always takes precedence. So if a file ‘./rancher/k3d-tools’ exists, k3d will try to import it instead of the IMAGE of the same name.

k3d image import [IMAGE | ARCHIVE [IMAGE | ARCHIVE...]] [flags]
