vctl is a command line utility for managing containers and the associated VMware container runtime (formerlly 'Project Nautilus'). vctl allows users to Build, Run, Push and Pull containers and images, manage the system runtime settings, and configure the environment to support 'kind'.
'vctl' is included with Fusion 11.5.5 and newer. Fusion 12 adds the additional capability to run 'kind' kubernetes clusters. The 'vctl' command line tool is added to $PATH by default each time Fusion starts, and does not need to be installed seperately.
For convenience, VMware Fusion can be installed via Homebrew:
brew install vmware-fusion
Fusion Pro and Workstation Pro each include a built-in 30 day trial license. Fusion Player or Workstation Player can be licensed for Personal Use for no cost.
