A kubeconfig file is a configuration file used by the Kubernetes command-line tool
kubectl to connect to a specific Kubernetes cluster. The file contains information such as the server address and authentication credentials for the cluster. It also allows you to switch between different clusters, as well as different contexts within a cluster, such as different namespaces or user accounts. With Taikun, you can easily generate a Kubeconfig file and use it on your machine to access the Kubernetes cluster you created in the previous step.
